Named after John Howell, the first African-American to own land in Clark County, Nevada, Howell Town aims to create an environment that focuses on the history, prosperity, and enrichment of the African and Black Diaspora communities. Through the use of faculty, programming, and campus resources students will learn through personal and group discovery around issues of identity development, race, class, gender, and social norms. Howell Town is open to students of all backgrounds and identities.
