University of the District of Columbia

Washington, DC

The University of the District of Columbia is the only public institution of higher education in the District of Columbia. Chartered in 1974 from three other institutions of higher learning, this Historically Black College/University maintains an open admissions policy, and is the only urban land-grant institution in the nation.

The University fulfills many missions in serving the citizens of the District of Columbia. Responsive to the occupational needs of District residents, the University is not only a graduate and baccalaureate degree granting institution, it is also a community college. Ever mindful of these responsibilities, the University continues to design programs and produce competitive graduates in response to the needs of the District.

The University also offers courses designed to upgrade the skills of District residents who are already on the job or who wish to become more competitive to qualify for jobs. Also, as an urban land-grant institution, the University ensures that its core charge of teaching, research, and public service, as specified in the Morrill Act, is in vanguard for improving the quality of life of the residents of the District of Columbia.

And as an open admissions university, the University provides broad opportunities for a diverse student population -- for those under-prepared as well as for those adequately prepared for higher education -- to enable them to become productive citizens with marketable skills. The University believes that its role in developing the under-prepared student is critical to the success of its students as well as to the future financial health and well-being of the District of Columbia.
