Welcome to the Howard University School of Divinity, our Beloved Community. For over 150 years, HUSD has been preparing men and women to provide professional, academic, and spiritual leadership for our communities, our country and the world.
The work of theological education is needed now more than ever in this broken and fractured world. How are you being equipped to bind the wounds of the suffering? What must you learn in order to speak life into hopeless situations? What skills and tools do you need to grieve with those who mourn? How are you being prepared to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with the “least of these?”
The Howard University School of Divinity is a place of learning, preparation, growth, challenge, stretching, and deep study. Proverbs 4:7 (NRSV) powerfully reminds us: “The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever else you get, get insight.”
