Howard University School of Divinity has been in the Ward 5 community for the past few years. Neighboring next to the Franciscan Monastery, they have been a pillar in the community for students that choose to pursue a devout career in religious studies and the pursuit of a church leader. They have led undergrad and post grad scholars in the theological studies from its inception in the Washington DC area.
It has since relocated to the campus of Howard University School of Law on Connecticut Ave. The current Dean is Alton B. Pollard III, Ph.D.
