Many hope Wayne Frederick used the moment to speak on many of the struggles people on campus face.

Published February 10, 2017

  1. On her first visit to a higher education institution, Betsy Devos visited Howard University, an extremely well-known HBCU
  2. Howard University President Wayne Frederick tweeted that the meeting with Devos went extremely well
  3. Additionally, Frederick released a statement regarding their meeting

    “Howard University is pleased that Betsy Devos, the new Secretary of Education, chose to visit our institution as her first official campus visit. We have a longstanding, successful relationship with the Department of Education and I look forward to advancing this relationship under the Secretary’s leadership. Our conversation today was a very meaningful one and I welcome the opportunity to continue discussing the many ways we can work together to forward the work of higher education, specifically that of Howard University, Howard University Middle School of Mathematics & Science, and HBCUs in general,” read the statement. 

  4. However, some felt the statement was too vague to really address the issues with Devos
  5. Howard University students against hate tweeted an opposition and disapproval of both Devos and her meeting with the president of the school
  6. Although Devos has not received much support from the public, students at Howard appeared equally as upset with their President for having the meeting
