Board Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co. Jamie Dimon will deliver the keynote address at the Howard University 147th Charter Day Convocation on March 7 at 11 a.m. in Cramton Auditorium.

In 2006, Dimon was named chief executive officer of JPMorgan Chase, the largest bank in the United States, and became chairman one year later. He has helmed the bank since JPMorgan Chase’s merger with Bank One Corporation in 2004.

This year’s Charter Day celebration marks the 147th anniversary of the charter enacted by Congress, and subsequently approved by President Andrew Johnson on March 2, 1867, which established Howard University.

The 90th Annual Charter Day Dinner will be held at The Washington Hilton hotel on March 8 at 7 p.m. The University will honor four alumni for their extraordinary accomplishments in their respective fields.
