Howard Creates a New Transportation HUB

Howard University received a $25,000 grant from the Home Depot “Retool your School Program,” which the Office of Sustainability will use to create a new Transportation HUB on campus. The HUB project will construct a much-needed exterior plaza for shuttle bus passengers waiting in front of Cramton Auditorium. The new plaza will increase space, accessibility and comfort for shuttle riders.

“The winning project is one that we’ve wanted to build for some time, and we are very happy we will be able to implement it,” says Alfonzye Chisholm, director of the Office of Sustainability.

Howard was one of three schools to win in the $25,000 Campus Pride Award category. The Home Depot 2014 Retool Your School Campus Improvement Grant Program is designed to enhance the appearance of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

“We look forward to the students’ help in creating a more sustainable Howard University,” says Dolce Lawless, a senior chemical engineering student who also serves as the director of sustainability and safety for the Howard University Student Association. “Student involvement was a critical component of the campaign. The Howard University community won the Campus Pride Award with their votes and tweets.”
