Parents play an important role in the Howard University community.
Howard is committed to providing a safe campus environment for all members of the University community. This mission is achieved by active participation by all University members, campus resources, and our community partners. We recommend that you take this time as an opportunity to protect your family with a communication plan.
Howard University works closely with the District of Columbia Mayor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency (HSEMA) and the DC Fire Department. University officials, including Public Safety, have participated in joint emergency response exercises and local emergency planning meetings. During an emergency, the HU Command Center will be in direct contact with the District of Columbia Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency (HSEMA) Emergency Operations Center.
