Howard University Research Month Postponed until April 2021

Thank you for your interest and continued support of Howard University Research Month. Given the historically large attendance (well over 3,000 participants) by faculty, students, research staff and external constituents from across the DMV, all Office of Research sponsored HU Research Month events are canceled. HU Research Month will be reinstated in April 2021.

The University will continue to provide general information and post news updates regarding COVID-19 via HU Communications and the Howard University website COVID-19 page:
