Howard comes to Jamaica
THE president of Howard University, Wayne A I Frederick, along with Barron H Harvey, dean of its School of Business; and LaTrice A Byam, director of admission & university registrar are in Jamaica on a week-long visit. The trip is intended to strengthen Howard's relationship with Jamaica and features a mix of meetings and activities for alums and potential students.
Dr Frederick visited AIM educational services on Friday, April 25, 2014 and met with Nicole McLaren-Campbell, director, toured their offices and discussed the importance of college and graduate school placements for Jamaican's and how Howard University can continue to grow their relationship with AIM as well as be a school of choice for college-ready Jamaican students.
A native of Trinidad and Tobago, Dr Frederick attended Howard University at age 16 and is the first Caribbean national to hold the Office of President at Howard University. Currently, 25 per cent of Howard's international student population is from the Caribbean and Dr Frederick is hoping to increase that number at what is undoubtedly the most renowned historically black university in the world.
