WASHINGTON, D.C. –– Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) today congratulated the Howard University administration and the student protestors on reaching an agreement.

Last week, Norton requested a meeting with Wayne Frederick, president of the prestigious historically Black university located in the District of Columbia.

Norton was also seeking a meeting with student protest leaders to discuss their concerns. The protest, during which students, alumni, housing activists and celebrities slept outdoors in tents to bring attention to their concerns, lasted 34 days.

“I am pleased that the student organizers and Howard administration have reached a resolution,” Norton said. “Some of their concerns are longstanding, and my hope is that a long-term solution has been found.”
