HISTORY

After attending the retirement luncheon of Dr. Cleveland Chandler and Dr. Huang, two Howard University Economics Professors, on March 10, 2001 at Bolling AFB, Washington, DC, graduates who attended the luncheon began to talk about how they can help the Department. On March 16, 2001 the first initial email was sent to all who attended the luncheon to get their feedback on “developing recommendations that we thought that the department could implement.” It was decided later that it was best to contact Dr. Ransford Palmer, Chairman of the Department, on how he would like for us to assist the Department, and on April 27, 2001, four alumni (Hazel Robinson, Sandra Cooke, Charles Thorpe, and Gwendolyn Flowers) met with Dr. Palmer prior to an ODE Dinner-Lecture. He gave us a list of 10 items he would like our assistance. At that point the Association was started and we organized ourselves to provide this support and more.

Howard University Economics Department Alumni Association (HUEDAA) was organized to provide advice and support to the faculty and students of the Economics Department at Howard University. HUEDAA goals are:

  • To provide career development advice and outreach to the Department
  • Identify potential employment and internship opportunities for students
  • Improve access to economic data and information for faculty and students
  • Assist the Department in fundraising efforts
