The email sent out regarding the protest:
As we can see through this email and the experiences shared of those on the ground, the University has elected to threaten and attack the credibility of the students instead of taking accountability.
To continue, I will be disproving claims made in this email in the order they are made, please add on if you have any additional prove of “disinformation” from the email
Claim 1: “These students are interrupting the necessary conduct of COVID-19 testing implemented to assure the health of the University community.” The protest was held in the main lobby area of Blackburn, whereas testing is conducted by the Restaurant in the back, so students
were not physically preventing testing from occurring. As testing is not canceled when students are in the lobby of blackburn for any other reason since its reopening.
Claim 2: “there is a marked delineation between historic protests and what we witnessed yesterday.” This protest is directly in line with every other protest that has been held at Howard University, the 1968 occupation of the A building,
The 1989 occupation of the A building ,…
and the 2018 occupation of the A building…
Claim 3: “The University looks to fully preserve the integrity and authenticity of students’ constitutionally guaranteed rights of free speech and assembly..” this is directly from the student code of conduct
Claim 4: “The University cannot sustain operations if tuition is cut by 40%, when we already charge as much as 50% less than peer institutions.” Howard Cost of Attendance:…

XULA Cost of Attendance:…
Spelman Cost of Attendance:…

Bowie Cost of Attendance:…

Hampton Cost of Attendance:…
Claim 5: “There is no housing shortage.” Housing Email from August
and to conclude, Claim 6 (as a continuation of Claim 3): “weaponization of these rights as false representations of the Howard student experience at large.”
Please quote with any issues you’ve had with Howard that align with the demands and points made by those protesting
Georgetown Cost of Attendance:…

American University Cost of Attendance:

on the topic of the student code of conduct, it was crafted very similarly to the constitution specifically in how they included certain “protections” that are intentionally vague or left to the discernment of whoever is enforcing it at the time
plus it includes other sections that directly contradict the “protections” depending on the interpretation of the person enforcing
examples include: section 3 which outlines student rights, specifically the “guaranteed freedoms of expression, inquiry and assembly…;the right to organize groups; the right to join associations in support of any cause or common interest” immediately after says
