Is Howard University on the verge of closing its doors?

According to the Huffington Post, in a letter sent to her fellow Howard University board of trustee members, vice chairwoman Renee Higginbotham-Brooks warned that without immediate changes to management and leadership, the school could shut down for good.

The letter was leaked to the Chronicle of Higher Education, who published it on their website.

In the letter, dated April 24th, Higginbotham-Brooks wrote: “Howard will not be here in three years if we don’t make some crucial decisions now.”

Some of the decisions she suggested Howard University make were changes in leadership. Higginbotham-Brooks called for “a vote of no confidence in both the Chairman of the Board and the president.”

In the letter, Higginbotham-Brooks cites the lack of a fundraising infrastructure, the decline in student enrollment, and the expected decline in federal support as important issues need to be addressed.
