2019 Homecoming

“Forward” is a concept that Howard University and all Bison embody: always leading in the front; always moving onward to make progress; always redefining the future. Howard’s recently unveiled strategic plan, Howard Forward: 2024, outlines the University’s vision to advance the mission over the next five years. As the Bison community returned to campus, our 2019 Homecoming was an opportunity to look ahead. Together. FORWARD.
