Howard University President, Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick, announced today that United States President, Barack H. Obama, will deliver the keynote address during Howard University’s 2016 commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 7, 2016. The President will address members of the Class of 2016 and their families, University trustees, officers, faculty, staff, and alumni.

“It is an extraordinary honor and privilege for the Howard University community to welcome President Barack H. Obama to our campus to deliver the 2016 commencement address,” said Howard University President, Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick. “The President’s commitment to education, especially for those who can least afford it, dovetails with Howard’s commitment to provide these same students with a rigorous, intellectually-stimulating, and academically-challenging educational experience. As we look into the not so distant future, Howard will commemorate its 150th Anniversary in March 2017, emboldened by a legacy of addressing disparities that are inextricably intertwined with this nation’s legacy of equality and inclusivity. President Obama’s own legacy gives the Howard Community great expectations for the leadership footprint it will leave on America and the globe,” added Frederick.
