Report a Concern

There are many ways for Howard University students to contact staff members about any concerns they have. Please reach out using the information below.

Behavior and Wellness

Are you concerned about a student's behavior or wellness?

Howard University’s Bison Intervention Team (BIT) is a cross-functional group designed to assess and respond to concerns and behaviors that hinder student success. This team mitigates and addresses student challenges by ensuring they are able to get the support they need from University staff and resources.

Issues you may send to BIT include concerns about mental health, safety, family, and more.

Gender-Based Assault or Harrassment

Contact Title IX

Hazing

Howard University has a zero-tolerance policy against hazing.

Hazing violates campus regulations, the Student Code of Conduct, chapter rules and sometimes city and state laws. Hazing is defined as any forced action that could possibly endanger the mental, physical, or emotional health or safety of a student.

A failure to address and/or report an act of hazing committed against another individual may also be considered an abuse of power and a violation of this policy.

Specific questions and reports of hazing should be directed to the Office of Student Life & Activities at 202-806-5990.

For immediate assistance, call Howard University Campus Police at 202-806-1100.
