Comey praised Howard as a training ground for professionals seeking to impact important areas of policy and law.
“I am honored to hold the King Chair this school year. Howard has a longstanding history of being a vibrant academic community and the perfect place to have rich dialogue on many of the most pressing issues we face today,” said Comey. “I look forward to contributing to this remarkable institution and engaging students and faculty alike.”

  1. Morris Brown did this to itsself. Just sell the property and everyone move. Its been a done deal for years now

  2. Hmm not so fast if there is some liens outstanding and another HBCU has first position with the liens the court has to follow the agreement. So it appears that either Clark Atlanta with get some much needed proceeds from the sale of Morris Brown or become owner of the institutions assets.
