Throughout its 141-year history, Dillard University has drawn on its commitment to excellence in education. Today, it is poised to become a center for preparing students for leadership in a highly competitive and global society.
Following Hurricane Katrina and the $400 million of devastation she left in her wake, the university has undergone significant rebuilding and restoration of its 55-acre campus.
It has transformed into a university with 21st century facilities and laboratories and state-of-the-art technology. The strategic intent is to provide a learning and living environment that empowers students by providing them the comprehensive education and leadership skills to sustain them through graduate schools and professional careers.
As of April1, 2012 the Advantage Dillard! campaign has raised $67.5 million toward its $70 million goal.
