We talk with Dr. Frederick about how the campus navigated a historic winter storm and the business perspectives of deferred maintenance on HBCU campuses.
Jelani Cobb writes in the New Yorker today about Howard University and its president Wayne A.I. Frederick, offering a long-form feature of Howard’s struggles in a political and social climate which has yielded a Trump presidency, and questions about HBCU identity as it darts in and out of the consciences of America and Black America.

In an interview with the Chronicle of Higher Education, Howard University President Wayne A.I. Frederick discusses the continuing value of historically black colleges, and defines some of the challenges in infrastructure, culture and finance.
