Howard University Assembles Fund-Raising Juggernaut
Masterson, Kathryn
Chronicle of Higher Education, v54 n42 pA1 Jun 2008
As a dental student 35 years ago, Leo E. Rouse and his Howard University classmates learned to fill cavities and cap teeth by crowding around one faculty member and angling for a clear view of the day's demonstration. Today students at Howard's College of Dentistry, where Dr. Rouse is now the dean, get an unobstructed view of dental procedures from computer monitors mounted on 45 workstations in the school's new simulation laboratory. If they miss something, they can go back and review by watching DVD's in the lab or on their laptops. The $1.3-million lab, which was built with money from the university's recently completed capital campaign, does more than enhance the students' experience, Dr. Rouse says. It has helped bring in donations from alumni and almost doubled the number of applications for the school's 85-seat class, from about 1,400 before the lab was built to 2,710 last year. This article discusses Howard University's successful fund-raising campaign which raises bar for black colleges.
