What is Howard University Known For?

Howard University is widely regarded as one of the country’s premier Historically Black Colleges and Universities, having been founded in 1867. Over its 150-year existence, Howard has produced thousands of African American scholars, athletes, artists, and entrepreneurs. As a private research institution, it boasts 13 schools and colleges offering undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees across many fields of study.  

One of Howard University’s most famous academic programs is its College of Medicine, which was established in 1868 and is the oldest medical school at a historically black college or university. Howard’s medical school has produced many notable alumni, including Charles Drew, who pioneered the use of blood plasma in transfusions, and Patricia Bath, who developed a surgical technique for removing cataracts that has helped millions of people worldwide. Today, the College of Medicine continues to be a leader in medical education and research and is dedicated to training physicians who will serve disadvantaged communities.
