As we communicated in June, plans are underway to transition the Howard University Savings Plan to a single record keeper relationship with TIAA. Although we required additional time to work through some of the complexities and challenges that emerged, we are very pleased to report we are moving forward. As of November 4, 2019, the Howard University Savings Plan will use TIAA as the single record keeper and implement the new investment lineup. Click the link below for additional information.

My Howard Benefits

Shaunado Edwards

Desktop Support Technician

Working at Howard University has been one of the best experiences I have ever had. I always wanted to attend and work at Howard because of the things I heard about it while living in Guyana. Being able to see the foundation of young African Americans growing into our future Presidents, leaders and politicians is an inexplainable feeling. Working here over the past 12 years has played an integral role in my life because I am able to give back to the African American community and to be among great researchers at an HBCU.
