What We Do

We Are JHUAN (J1)

As the first affinity group of it’s kind at Howard University, JHUAN aims to be the gold standard for future groups on campus. We are building upon a more than 100 year legacy of Jamaican nationals thriving at Howard then going onto pursue distinguished careers. Our goal is to increase the pipeline of Jamaican students that matriculate through Howard University. We will accomplish this by inspiring Jamaican students to pursue their dreams of higher education, providing them with the necessary resources, and engaging them in a community of Howard scholars working toward positively impacting the global community.

JHAUN's Big Picture

This year’s cohort consists of 15 students, 10 women and 5 men. They are all at various levels of their education ranging from Sophomore to Graduate School, however, the majority are Seniors. The students represent several different disciplines including Arts & Science, Engineering & Architecture, Dentistry and Business. Under the JHUAN's mentorship program, we've hosted 5 mentorship sessions and have seen a 100% graduate rate amongst our scholars.
