Howard University Policy on Equal Opportunity

Howard University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, gender, marital status, religion, disability, age, sexual preference, political affiliation or any other basis prohibited by Federal or District of Columbia law. This policy covers administration of the University’s educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, other University administered programs, and employment.

Inquiries regarding provisions for handicapped persons, equal opportunity and Title IX should be addressed to the appropriate person listed below:


Title Vl of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, requires that no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Education.

To determine whether an institution adheres to the above, the Office of Civil Rights Planning in the U.S. Department of Education requires that:

“Each recipient shall keep such records and submit to the responsible Department official or his designee timely, complete and accurate compliance reports at such times, and in such form and containing such information, as the responsible Department official or his designee may determine to be necessary to enable him to ascertain whether the recipient has complied or is complying with this part. In the case of any other recipient, such other recipient shall also submit such compliance reports to the primary recipient to carry out its obligations under this part.” Title 45 Subtitle A — Department of Education Sec. 80.6 (b) (1972).

Consequently, Howard University must provide the US Department of Education with specific statistical student ethnic origin data. Each student, therefore, is asked to assist the University in complying with this requirement by providing this data when requested.
