African Students Association

In accordance with the founding mission of this organization to promote the unity, progress and strength of students of African descent as well as those of non-African descent on campus,the Howard University African Students Association (HU ASA) - a member-driven association since its inception, has recorded great success in the achievement of its mission on the campus of Howard University and beyond.

Armed with a combination of its prominence on campus, the exceptional character and intellectual competence of the African student body, and the various educational and socio-cultural programs organized by the HU ASA, the association has effectively presented Africa in good light, and dispelled the misconceptions and negative stereotypes that existed of Africa and continental Africans at Howard University. The association has also extended hands of friendship, and enhanced relationships between continental Africans and Africans in the Diaspora (which comprises mainly of Afro-Americans and Caribbean). These hands of friendship also include various community service programs organized by the HU ASA to improve the quality of life in our immediate neighborhood and beyond. Instagram
