Howard University College of Medicine maintains the No. 1 ranking for Most Diverse Medical Schools

WASHINGTON – Howard University’s graduate programs in social work, education, and business each received significant increases in the annual national rankings produced by U.S. News and World Report’s 2023 “Best Graduate Schools” listing. Howard University School of Social Work is ranked No. 16 , the School of Education (HUSOE) is ranked No. 71 , and the School of Business is ranked No. 57 for its full-time MBA program. In the medical school rankings, the Howard University College of Medicine ranked No. 1 for Most Diverse Medical School and No. 49 ranking for Most Graduates in Primary Care Specialties .

“The rise in our graduate program’s rankings affirm the efforts of Howard University faculty, staff, and students who work tirelessly to maintain the highest standard of academic excellence,” said President Wayne A. I. Frederick, MD, MBA . “We credit the collective effort of our campus community who strive to fulfill our mission of truth and service and consistently provide Howard students with unique and innovative programing. It is because of their service that our graduate students leave Howard’s campus equipped with a broad range of skills and a deep sense of purpose, prepared to have an impact on their communities.”

The Howard University School of Social Work jumped nine spots on the list this year with a ranking of No. 16 . Rooted in a social justice framework, the school offers interprofessional programming that increases students’ preparedness to enter the field after graduation. In January, the School of Social Work introduced an online MSW program that increases accessibility, making it possible for students to receive the program’s world-class, educational experience from virtually anywhere.

“Our founding dean, Dr. Inabel Burns Lindsay, set out to have a social work program at Howard that was respected and relevant to the needs of African Americans and other marginalized and underserved populations,” said Sandra Crewe, Ph.D. , dean of the School of Social Work. “Being highly ranked by our peer institutions reflects our positive relationships and ongoing commitment to excellence and being bold in addressing inequities in our society. I am grateful to our faculty, staff, alumni, students, colleagues, and friends for recognizing and investing in our excellence."

Howard University’s School of Education soared 20 spots to No. 71 . Ranking among the top 30 percent of graduate education schools in the nation, the School of Education has advanced its position in the world through continuous innovation in learning and self-evaluation of its various programs.

“The past two academic years have been filled with challenge, resiliency and triumph,” said Dawn Williams, Ph.D., dean of the School of Education. “The School of Education faculty have been of service not only to our students, but also to the larger educational community as we managed learning transitions and threats to delivering a culturally affirming education. All the while, we have held a steadfast commitment to our mission to empower individuals, schools and communities through the promotion of racial and social justice. It brings me great joy to know that our hard work has not gone unrecognized.”

Congratulations! Howard University excels in 2023 list of #BestGradSchools

The Howard University School of Business ranked No. 57 for its full-time MBA program, a seven-point increase in its ranking from previous year. The School of Business and its award-winning programs were the first business school in Washington, D.C to receive accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. In addition to its full-time MBA program, the school has worked to expand its online offerings with an online part-time MBA and two new specialized programs: an online Master of Accountancy and online Master of Finance.

“Howard School of Business is proud to see our rankings continue to rise among the best business programs in the country,” said Anthony D. Wilbon, Ph.D. , dean of Howard University School of Business. “Our students and faculty have worked hard over the past year to uphold a standard of excellence and I am glad that our efforts are being recognized and respected. We are consistently innovating the way we approach education, as evidenced by our ever-expanding online offerings and we are excited for what the future holds.”

The College of Medicine ranked No. 1 for Most Diverse Medical Schools and jumped to No. 49 in the ranking for Most Graduates in Primary Care Specialties.

“For more than a century, Howard University College of Medicine has been providing students of high academic potential with a medical education of exceptional quality and thereby preparing future physicians and scientists to serve the underserved,” said Hugh E. Mighty, MD , Howard University College of Medicine dean and senior vice president of clinical affairs. “We are delighted that many of our programs saw notable gains in this year’s U.S. News & World Report rankings.”

Since 1983, the U.S. News and World Report has been the foremost authority in ranking educational institutions. Their rankings are often used in the decision-making process for those pursuing higher education. Howard’s jump in the rankings reflects the success of the school’s mission to be a top-ranking institution that generates impactful research. Howard continues to pursue excellence and forward progress in educating transformational leaders and educators.

HRSA Training Grant Program for MSW Students 2017-2021

The purpose of this grant-funded project is to increase the number and improve the educational preparation of a diverse group of MSW-level social workers to provide behavioral health services in medically under-served communities and/or with medically under-served populations.  The focus is on mental health and substance abuse care across the lifespan in integrated and inter-disciplinary settings.  Student trainees will be better prepared to work individually and on the community level to improve services, access, and outcomes.  This project has created several different educational enhancements, which focus on culturally- and linguistically-sensitive interventions in integrated primary care settings with the target population.

Enhancements

The grant-supported enhancements include an annual workshop series; an annual day-long conference for the professional and educational communities, including all trainees; and trainees’ production of a community action project to be carried out in connection with students’ fieldwork placements and presented at the annual conference.  In addition, Spanish-English bi-lingual trainees may participate in the dual-language section of the Advanced Social Work Practice course.

Interdisciplinary Workshop Series

All trainees attend four workshops per year.  In addition, our efforts extended to addressing the behavioral health care of medically underserved communities and populations with the Fieldwork Instructors, Educational Coordinators, and staff in area agencies plus college faculty, staff, and students. Licensed social workers earn Continuing Education Credits for attendance at the workshops.  To date, workshops have addressed working with formerly incarcerated adults, parents who identify as LGBTQ, and older adults, among others.  For the 2018-2019 academic year, the theme of the workshops is trauma-informed care with topics such as working with veterans, children, and the LGBTQ community.

Fall 2018 workshop dates:

  • Thursday, September 27 th  2:30-4:30 Carman Hall, room B39
  • Thursday, October 25 th  2:30-4:30 Carman Hall, room B39
  • Thursday, November 29 th  2:30-4:30 Carman Hall, room B39

Annual Interdisciplinary Conferences

In the spring of each grant year, the Social Work Department and grant staff host an inter-disciplinary conference attended by all trainees plus professionals serving the target population.  The first conference in spring 2018 addressed homelessness and housing insecurity with presentations from formerly homeless individuals, social workers, and others.  Topics included people without homes who are children, veterans, older adults, LGBTQ young adults, have physical disabilities, are street homelessness, and others. The spring 2019 conference (to be held on Friday, March 29 th , 2019) will focus on creative therapies and approaches to working with trauma, including art therapy, pet therapy, and other creative treatment modalities that may be unfamiliar to many social workers.

Community Action Projects

All trainees complete a community action project related to needs at their field placement during the year and exhibit this at the annual conference.  These projects are designed and carried out with the support of one of the Lehman social work faculty mentors who meets with the trainees in groups and individually.  The projects are designed to create a sustainable improvement to the agencies, communities, and/or target population to meet behavior health care needs.  During the first year of the grant, students designed better systems for intakes and discharge processes, developed curricula for therapeutic groups, improved vocational preparation, developed community resources referrals, and designed psychoeducational outreach initiatives.  These projects will continue to help the target population even after the students have left their fieldwork sites.

Dual-Language Section of Advanced Practice

Students who are bi-lingual in Spanish and English have the opportunity to participate in a dual-language section of the Advanced Social Work Practice course.  Delivering effective services in Spanish is a critical need, but not all bi-lingual social workers are actually prepared to do so.  This course addresses the practice issues that commonly arise but, importantly, moves beyond translation to more complex issues, such as how language, culture, and other factors affect the professional helping relationship.

At Harvard, Some Wonder What It Will Take to Stop the Spiral

At a summit of university presidents, the talk was about Harvard and its plummeting reputation.

By Anemona Hartocollis

When 70 university presidents gathered for a summit at the end of January, the topic on everyone’s mind was the crisis at Harvard.

The hosts of the summit treated the university, battered by accusations of coddling antisemitism, as a business-school case study on leadership in higher education, complete with a slide presentation on its plummeting reputation.

The killer slide: “Boeing & Tesla Have Similar Levels of Negative Buzz as Harvard.”

In other words, Harvard, a centuries-old symbol of academic excellence, was generating as much negative attention as an airplane manufacturer that had a door panel drop from the sky and a car company with a mercurial chief executive and multiple recalls.

Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, a professor at Yale’s School of Management, organized the summit. “Despite near 400 years of history, the value of brand equity is nowhere near as permanent as Harvard trustees think it is,” he said in an interview. “There used to be a term in the industry of something being the Cadillac of the industry. Well, Cadillac itself is, you know, sadly not the Cadillac of the industry anymore.”

Many of the presidents attending the summit saw the erosion of Harvard’s brand as a problem not only for the school, but also by extension for the entire enterprise of higher education. If Harvard could not protect itself, then what about every other institution? Could Harvard’s leadership find an effective response?

There was a hint of a more assertive approach by Harvard on Monday, when the university announced that it was investigating “deeply offensive antisemitic tropes” posted on social media by pro-Palestinian student and faculty groups. The groups had posted or reposted material containing an old cartoon of a puppeteer, his hand marked by a dollar sign inside a Star of David, lynching Muhammad Ali and Gamal Abdel Nasser.

Harvard took the action at a time when the House Committee on Education and the Workforce has begun to scrutinize its record on antisemitism. On Friday, the committee issued subpoenas to Harvard’s interim president, the head of the school’s governing board and its investment manager, in a wide-ranging hunt for documents relating to the university’s handling of campus antisemitism claims. The threat of the subpoenas led PEN America, a writers’ group that defends academic freedom, to warn against a fishing expedition.

There is also a lawsuit against Harvard, calling the university “a bastion of rampant anti-Jewish hatred and harassment,” as well as federal investigations into charges that the university ignored both antisemitism and Islamophobia on campus.

Corporate executives and major donors, including the hedge fund executive Ken Griffin , have threatened to withhold money and to refrain from hiring Harvard students who defended atrocities committed by Hamas in attacking Israel on Oct. 7. Right-wing media outlets and anonymous researchers continue to make plagiarism claims against university officials, as part of an attack on diversity, equity and inclusion programs.

There is already evidence of reputational damage: a 17 percent drop in the number of students applying to Harvard for early admission decisions this year. Other Ivy League schools saw increases.

The attacks “have obviously unsettled Harvard, in terms of its highest leadership,” said Randall Kennedy, a Harvard law professor. “They have undermined morale. It has been a very effective attack.”

Inside Harvard, faculty members and students are looking for some signal from university officials, including the main governing board, the Harvard Corporation, about its future direction.

In an interview last week with Harvard magazine, Alan Garber, the university’s interim president, outlined some efforts to relieve the tension by enforcing rules against disruptive demonstrations and offering a series of events meant to encourage dialogue rather than conflict among students and faculty members.

Those are good moves, said Dara Horn, a novelist who served last year on a committee to advise Harvard’s president on how to combat antisemitism. She had observed that many students did not engage with people they disagreed with, and did not know how.

“That attitude is the end of education,” said Dr. Horn, who has published an article about her experience at Harvard in The Atlantic. “To me, that’s sort of like the baseline thing.”

Alex Bernat, a Harvard junior and board member of Chabad, a Jewish student group, said on Tuesday that the university’s swift response to the antisemitic posts this week was a good sign. But he worried that some members of a pro-Palestinian faculty group that reposted the antisemitic material had power over Jewish and Israeli students’ academic careers.

The groups that had posted the material removed it on Monday and said their apparent endorsement of antisemitic imagery was inadvertent.

Even so, the Harvard Corporation has been relatively quiet, other than to confirm that its leader, Penny Pritzker, a philanthropist and former Obama administration official, would stay on and conduct a new presidential search, just as she led the one that chose the previous president, Claudine Gay.

The Corporation has drawn criticism for its selection and support of Dr. Gay, who resigned on Jan. 2 after an uproar over her testimony to Congress that calling for the genocide of Jews was not necessarily a violation of Harvard’s code of conduct, depending on the context.

The Corporation has been faulted for not acting more quickly to address the matter, “letting the university twist in the wind,” as Steven Pinker, an outspoken psychology professor, put it in an interview. (He was quick to note that he had not called for Dr. Gay’s ouster.)

Among some members of the faculty, though, there is a sense that the university may go too far in appeasing its critics.

At the December congressional hearing that doomed Dr. Gay, Virginia Foxx, a North Carolina Republican, singled out a class at Harvard, “Race and Racism in the Making of the United States as a Global Power,” as an example of “ideology at work.”

The teacher of that class, Khalil Gibran Muhammad, said the charge was “absurd,” and that the class includes readings on the history of antisemitism in the United States. He said he was concerned that new conduct rules adopted in September, prohibiting discrimination by “political beliefs,” would lead students to complain if, like Dr. Foxx, they objected to the content of his classes.

“Prominent Black folks at this university do have reasons to worry” that their credentials will be questioned, he said.

In the fraught atmosphere, good intentions have sometimes led to problems.

Harvard’s decision to create task forces on antisemitism and Islamophobia on campus — usually the most anodyne of institutional responses — ran into trouble in late January, after Derek Penslar, a prominent scholar of Jewish studies, was tapped to co-chair the antisemitism task force.

Critics objected to his appointment, citing an open letter signed by Dr. Penslar and other academics and published before the Oct. 7 attacks, accusing Israel of being “a regime of apartheid.” The critics scoffed at his remarks, quoted in the Jewish press, saying that the degree of antisemitism at Harvard had been exaggerated.

Harvard’s failure to anticipate the skeptical response to Dr. Penslar’s appointment points to a leadership that is too insular, according to David Wolpe, a prominent rabbi and visiting scholar at Harvard’s divinity school.

“There’s an inability of the university to see how it would be seen, and there’s a maladroitness that is dispiriting to many of the Jewish students and faculty and staff,” Rabbi Wolpe said.

Dr. Penslar, who remains co-chair of the task force, declined to comment for this article. His supporters bristled at what they saw as facile criticism of a respected scholar.

“For him to be vetoed, from the outside, for expressing his views — particularly given that they’re pretty mainstream views — is just a terrible, terrible precedent,” said Steven Levitsky, a professor of Latin American studies and government at Harvard. Contrary to the public portrayal, Dr. Penslar is “a self-avowed Zionist,” Dr. Levitsky said.

Some alumni are trying to shake things up. Several independent candidates mounted a campaign for seats on Harvard’s Board of Overseers, the university’s second governing body. The candidates failed to gather enough petition signatures to get on the ballot, but have vowed to keep pushing.

One of those candidates, Sam Lessin, a 2005 Harvard graduate and venture capitalist, said the election process itself exposed the issues with leadership.

Harvard’s governance system is “almost like a peacetime organization,” not suited to navigating troubled waters, he said. Candidates for the Board of Overseers are normally nominated through the alumni association, and the position is often perceived as “a glorified reward for being a booster.”

Some faculty members are also organizing. About 170 Harvard professors have joined a council on academic freedom, co-founded last spring by Dr. Pinker, to counter what he describes as “an intellectual monoculture.”

Dr. Pinker believes that if Harvard had adopted a policy of institutional neutrality and refrained from taking stands on vexing issues of the day, some of the agony of recent months might have been avoided.

“Universities should get out of the habit of giving mini-sermons every time there’s an event in the news,” he said.

Dr. Pinker has made a puckish hobby of collecting headlines and cartoons that make fun of Harvard’s reputational troubles. A bumper sticker in his collection says, “My son didn’t go to Harvard.”

For all that, though, Harvard “still has the brand, it has the legacy,” Dr. Pinker said. “Whether it’ll get back on track, I don’t know. I suspect it will.”
