It’s Charter Day At Howard University!

Charter Day is a time of celebration! This year is Howard’s 151st anniversary of its founding in 1867.

We celebrate because we are grateful for the March 2, 1867, approval of the University Charter by President Andrew Johnson for an institution dedicated to the betterment of humanity. We are grateful for Howardites – collectively and individually – who, through individual example and support of their alma mater, exhibit the very spirit that has marked Howard as one of the great romances in American education.

The 2018 Charter Day Convocation will be held Friday, March 2, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. in Cramton Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public. WATCH Charter Day Convocation LIVE here. 

On the evening of Saturday, March 3, at 6:00 p.m. the 2018 Charter Day Dinner continues a 94-year-old tradition of honoring the founding of Howard University through a university-wide celebration. The annual black-tie gala, which also serves as Howard’s premiere fundraising event, is one of the most important activities on the University’s annual calendar. This year, the proceeds from the dinner will support the Student Aid Campaign and its efforts to directly address the gaps that exist in financial aid for Howard students. GRAMMY Award-nominee, singer, songwriter, producer, and HU alum Eric Roberson will emcee the event. Johnny Gill will perform at the dinner.

We hope that you will join us at the 2018 Charter Day Dinner. Your financial support of the University, and in particular this event, is greatly appreciated and will aid us ensuring that more deserving students can achieve their dreams of obtaining a Howard degree.
