In Washington, D.C., hundreds of Howard University students are occupying their campus’s main administrative building for a fifth straight day today, in a protest that began amid reports that university employees misappropriated $1 million in financial aid funds in a possible case of embezzlement. The students are demanding that President Wayne Frederick and the executive committee of the Board of Trustees resign over the scandal. They’re also demanding more action to prevent sexual assault on campus; the disarming of campus police; and adequate housing at the historically black university.
