On Wednesday, Howard University interim President Wayne A.I. Frederick addressed the Howard-Shaw community in a town hall meeting, answering questions about his plans for the university.
Fredrick — appointed interim president in early October after President Sidney A. Ribeau announced his retirement — began his presidential career with a flurry of questions, not only from current students, but also alumni and members of the community. They all want to know the future direction of the university. The night was designed to give students, alumni, and community members the opportunity to submit questions through Howard University Student Life & Activities HUSA; some of which were directed to Frederick at the meeting.
Questions ranged from issues on the state of campus buildings and university fees to campus safety and the school’s relationship with the community.
