Howard University was established in 1866, shortly after the Civil War, by the First Congregational Society of Washington as a seminary for educating African-American clergymen. The school quickly developed into a university with the approval of President Andrew Johnson in 1867.
Today, Howard University is one of the country’s 48 private Doctoral/Research Extensive universities. Students choose from over 120 areas of study, and the University has produced more on-campus African-American Ph.D.s than any other university in the world. Famous alumni include actress Phylicia Rashad, the late US Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Toni Morrison.
The campus spans 256 acres in northwest Washington. The campus contains several historic landmarks, including the Fredrick Douglass Memorial Hall and the Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel.
