Six Howard Univeristy employees were given the boot after a review revealed that some university employees received inappropriate refunds from the financial aid department, according to a statement from the University’s President Wayne Frederick.
Frederick said that an auditor found that between 2007 and 2016, several employees were given grants and tuition remission. The grants and tuition remission equaled more than the cost of the university, which allowed the employees to keep the “inappropriate funds.”
These grants come from funds that are supposed to help students to be able to attend the historically black college.
According to Frederick, he brought the issue to the Department of Education in July 2017. An investigation was conducted and in September 2017, six employees were told they no longer have a job for “gross misconduct and neglect of duties.”
