In the aftermath of a melee last month between several Howard University students and a group of 50 or so young people, university officials announced the creation of a “safe path” for students to use while crossing the campus. “At night, this is the path we want you to walk because every 100 or 200 feet or so, you will see a safety officer, someone who is trained and who understands the language to use and someone who will be responsive,” Tashni-Ann Dubroy, Howard’s executive vice president and chief operating officer, said during a town hall meeting held in response to the fights.
