WASHINGTON -

Howard University says former President Bill Clinton will deliver the school's commencement address in May.

Howard President Sidney Ribeau announced Tuesday that Clinton would deliver the speech on May 11. Ribeau says Clinton's example as a leader, humanitarian and advocate and his commitment to public service will inspire the class of 2013.

In the school's announcement, Howard officials said Clinton presided over the strongest economy in a generation. The school also noted that since leaving the White House, Clinton has worked on global health and environmental issues and to strengthen economies through the William J. Clinton Foundation.

Howard is among the nation's oldest historically black colleges and universities. It was established in 1867, following the Civil War.
