Howard University Rises in National Rankings
« on: September 15, 2017, 11:11:46 AM »
These flawed ranking systems, like the near-obsession with flawed SAT score, are a reality of life in higher education and, whether we like them or not, they impact our institutions.

Howard U. took action to do what some of those other institutions do - address the data points that the publications use.  Fortunately addressing some of those points (like retention rates, which themselves are often misleading), actually are positive changes for students.  Three years ago Howard began a very aggressive effort to improve retention and graduation rates, which were already well above national averages.

Doing so, along with other factors, has paid off in the rankings.  However, the more important and lasting result is better outcomes for our students.

Long Live Killmonger!

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
