In a public statement addressed to “Members of the Howard Community, Alumni, Friends and Supporters,” Howard University chairman of the board of trustees Addison Barry Rand addressed the leaked letter:
“As many of you are aware, recent news media coverage has publicized a letter sent by the vice chair of the Howard University Board of Trustees to other members of the Board, which unfortunately without proper context, paints an unduly alarming picture of the University’s condition. As Chairman I want to assure you that working together with input from all of the University stakeholders, Howard University remains academically, financially and operationally strong.”
Rand, who is also the chief executive officer of AARP, acknowledged the increase in loan denials for many of their undergraduate students and parents, but said application rates remain high.
Rand said, “the board welcomes and is extremely sensitive to expressions of concern and input from various stakeholders.”
