Ribeau won friends at Howard U. even as questions arose about the school’s direction – The Washington Post

Howard University’s 16th president, Sidney A. Ribeau, seemed to have little trouble winning friends on campus even as questions arose about whether the school was adrift under his five-year stewardship. On Friday, Ribeau and university trustees donned academic gowns to welcome the Class of 2017 in a convocation in Cramton Auditorium. Outside, a couple dozen professors, students and staff members gathered for a demonstration to voice concern about the condition of the school they call the Mecca.
