    WDSU6 VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

    Brown... The unarmed black teen shot and killed after a confrontation with a ferguson police officer earlier this month. Following the funeral at a st. Louis church, a procession took place to a cemetery where michael brown was laid to rest. On a campus of students who say they identify with 18-year-old michael brown... A moment of silence for the tragic loss. As the teen's family laid him to rest... Dillard university paused to pray for peace. Wdsu's casey ferrand shows us why for one student... This was a chance to join with friends and family in missouri. On the first day of classes here at dillard university, students gathered at the flag pole praying for peace in honor of mike brown, an 18 year old who will not have the chance to go to college. 10 We pray for the families and the children who have been slain by gun violence. A sound that's heard in every city. A sound that's heard loudly in ferguson, missouri... Which is only miles away from the suburb where dillard senior quentin worth grew up. He left home to return to campus the day michael brown was shot and killed by an officer. I felt it here because i have younger siblings and they have to grow up amongst this type of police brutality and things of that nature also i've had to look back on my past experiences with police in st. Louis. He's only been able to watch the unrest and violence from afar... Keeping in touch with family through hourly phone calls. I couldn't do much from here but my family is out there protesting and i'm worried he says he's seen the tension between police and young men in st. Louis grow in recent years... He was even pulled over by police this summer. It's just a lot that goes into the aggression between the young males and the police. It's a lot of division between the two sides. Monday, quentin joined with students at dillard... Hands up, don't shoot. Hands up don't shoot as they call for justce and pray for peace. We shall overcome the activities that have been occuring haven't been i assume what the family would want. All the riots going on in ferguson. We don't need that we need a time of peace. We need a time for justice. We need a time for accountability. On a campus of mostly black students... These young people understand that on any day... Ferguson missouri could easily be new orleans, louisiana. As a black male we are labeled, and it frightens me sometimes but you just have to be motivated, you have to pray, you have to remain calm and just do the right thing. Officials say there are about 12-hundred students here, 30 percent of them are black men. On your side casey ferrand wdsu news.

    Diverse: Issues In Higher Education


    Dr. Richard Igwike, interim dean of the College of Business at Dillard University located in New Orleans, which nearly tripled its international student enrollment in the last two years, says the cost of these programs gives many of his students pause.

    Igwike says nine Dillard students participated in study abroad programs last year. Of those students, six went to Ghana. He says that, in addition to paying their regular semester tuition and fees, these students have to cough up an additional $3,000 to cover the expense of traveling to the West African nation and staying there for a few weeks. Igwike notes the university is exploring the option of building this cost into students’ financial aid loan applications.

    Schools’ challenges

    But financial challenges are not just limited to students.

    Recently, the American Council on Education conducted a study examining factors that “enhance and impede the internationalization process at HBCUs.” The study, which was funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, looked at seven HBCUs — Howard, Dillard, Tuskegee, Lincoln University (Missouri), North Carolina A&T, Savannah State and Virginia State.
