Blackburn University Center

The Armour J. Blackburn University Center serves as the social hub of the University providing an environment for cultural, recreational, leisure and intellectual enrichment outside of the classroom. The University Center bridges the gap between the University and community and serving as a conference site for university activities, community events, national conferences, business meetings, and lectures.

The University Center also serves as a training center for many students by providing employment for students while they matriculate at the University. The employment opportunities provide a financial resource for the students while they are in school and serves as an entry level employment experience on their resume for the Association of College Unions International.

The University Center reflects and strengthens, traditions, and history of Howard University, creating an environment for different generations come together and address critical social, economic, and cultural diversities in our society. The center compliments the academic learning experiences with a holistic approach to leadership development and multi-cultural experiences and community outreach.

We assure the realization of our mission, with the continued support and cooperative collaboration from the University community and the local community at large.
