Howard U. Faculty Calls for President Frederick’s Resignation

Howard University President Wayne A.I. Frederick is again under pressure to resign despite having just weeks ago garnered the support of the school’s board of trustees amid a high-profile financial aid scandal.

In an April 20 letter, Howard’s faculty leaders called for Frederick’s resignation in the wake of the scandal and other controversies at the university.

The letter, which alluded to a no-confidence vote for Frederick by “rank-and-file faculty members,” specifically targets the beleaguered president along with Chief Operating Officer Tashni-Ann Dubroy and Provost Anthony Wutoh.

According to the letter, Howard’s Faculty Senate Council cited its “dissatisfaction with global systemic issues and chronic challenges posed by defaults in administrative leadership.”

Hundreds of students led by the student-run protest group HU Resist occupied Howard’s administration building for nine days beginning late last month after it was revealed that university officials failed to disclose embezzlement in the school’s financial aid office that prompted the firing of six employees.
