“In Truth and Service”—or Veritas et Utilitas—is a motto that the Howard community constantly strives to live up to and exemplify. The annual Howard University Day of Service (HUDOS) hosted by the Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel is an example of that effort put into action.
“When Howard shows up, it’s significant,” said Glen D. Vinson Jr., former associate dean for Religious and Civic Engagement at the chapel. “It means that we’re aware of the issues and the things that are going on and we’re willing to get our hands dirty to do something about it. I think that’s one of the biggest things that is amazing about Howard students: They are willing to get their hands dirty to ensure that we have a better and greater community for everyone.”
