200: It's About HBCU Excellence - with Dr. Wayne Frederick, President, Howard University

Welcome back to America’s leading higher education podcast! This is The EdUp Experience President Series Episode #67. In this episode, sponsored by Element451, we welcome Dr. Wayne Frederick, President at Howard University!  Thank you for taking this amazing journey with us to episode #200!  In this episode, Wayne talks to us about why HBCU excellence is the message over HBCU relevance.  Wayne shares his passion for helping marginalized communities, particularly in the healthcare realm where black men and women are disproportionately affected.  Wayne also discusses Howard's history including its reluctant realization by a U.S. President.  Finally, Wayne discusses the future of higher education and the future of HBCUs in the higher education landscape.

A distinguished scholar and administrator, Dr. Frederick has advanced Howard University's commitment to student opportunity, academic innovation, public service, and fiscal stability. Early in his tenure as president, Dr. Frederick pursued initiatives to streamline and strengthen university operations. He has overseen a series of reform efforts, including the expansion of academic offerings, establishing innovative programs to support student success, and the modernization of university facilities.
