About Howard University

How hard is it to find a good education in our nation's capital? Not too hard, thanks to Howard University. The predominantly African-American university enrolls about 10,500 students and has a low student-teacher ratio of about 8:1. The school offers undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees in areas such as engineering, education, divinity, – more... dentistry, law, medicine, history, political science, music, and social work. Howard University's endowment is about $400 million. Its operating budget is nearly $885 million. Established in 1867, the school was named after one of its founders, General Oliver O. Howard, a Civil War hero who was commissioner of the Freedman's Bureau.

Medical students at Howard University have the convenience of using Howard University Hospital (located right on the school's campus) for their training and residency programs. The not-for-profit hospital offers students training in a full range of medical specialties, including Level 1 Trauma care. The hospital is also a research facility giving students the opportunity to participate in clinical and research work.

Notable alumni at Howard University include choreographer Debbie Allen, former US Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, former New York City mayor David Dinkins, Nobel laureate Toni Morrison, and singer Roberta Flack. – less
