President Joe Biden is giving the commencement speech at Howard University today on the Upper Quadrangle. President Biden will also be receiving an honorary Doctor of Letters from the university.

Howard University President Wayne Frederick said, “It is an honor and privilege to welcome President Biden to deliver the 2023 commencement address and celebrate the graduating Class of 2023.”

“This honorary Doctor of Letters is much deserved for his years of transformational service as U.S. Senator, Vice President, and now as President of the United States,“ Dr. Frederick continued. “We are excited to receive the President as this year’s distinguished guest and recognize him for his relentless work uplifting our communities that have been historically left behind.“ 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president as he is receives the honorary doctor of letters today.
  • For the president and his advisers as they continue to pursue policies that address discrimination.
  • For the class of 2023, that the Lord would work His will through the new generation of college graduates.
