Japanese Lesen resizeDillard University will host a student ecology and leadership conference from Feb. 20-23, 2013. The event, which will bring diverse undergraduate students from across the country to New Orleans, is organized by the Ecological Society of America’s Strategies for Ecology Education, Diversity and Sustainability program (SEEDS), which encourages underrepresented students to study ecology and assume leadership in the field. The Mitsubishi Corporate Foundation for the Americas is sponsoring the event.

The conference’s theme is “Ecological Recovery and Prevention of Environmental Disasters: Harnessing Science and Building Social Resilience.” Workshops will study environmental disasters in a variety of ways, from assessment to prevention, and use Hurricane Katrina and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill as case studies. Field trips to sites in New Orleans will explore the impact of these cataclysmic events on ecosystems and communities and give students an opportunity to engage in recovery projects.

Featured presenters will include Dr. Lovell Agwaramgbo, professor of chemistry and chair of Dillard’s School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics; Dr. Amy Lesen (co-organizer of the conference), associate professor of biology and the advisor for the ESA-SEEDS chapter at Dillard; Dr. Beverly Wright, founder of the Deep South Center for Environmental Justice at Dillard; Dr. Scott Collins, president of the Ecological Society of America; Darryl Malek-Wiley of the Sierra Club; representatives from Tulane University and the University of New Orleans; and more.

In honor of Black History Month, Dillard University is spotlighting notable alumni who have made contributions to their communities and to African-American culture. Our first two subjects are currently presiding over national Greek organizations.

ButlerMcIntyre smCynthia Butler-McIntyre, ’76, National President of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

Dillard alumna Cynthia Butler-McIntyre is a woman on a mission. Along with all the usual duties required of an organization president, she has to lead the Delta Sigma Thetas during the 100th anniversary of the sorority. Butler-McIntyre, a New Orleans native, has been called “a leader with a servant’s heart.”

On Jan. 13, 2013 the Delta Sigma Thetas visited Fair Dillard to pay tribute to the school and its local chapter. Currently, Butler-McIntyre is touring the country with her sorority sisters to share in the Delta Centennial Celebration. New Orleans was the second stop on the Delta Torch Tour, which will end in Washington, D.C. during the sorority’s 51st National Convention in July. Earlier this year, the Deltas took part in the annual Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, Calif.

The Deltas have a long history of helping others and transforming lives, from women’s suffrage to the civil rights movement. They are the single largest African-American women’s organization in the U.S. and have more than 900 chapters throughout the world.

Dillard alumnus Mark Tillman is a man of many accomplishments. Along with leading a global team of systems engineers at Hewlett-Packard, Tillman is an outstanding leader and speaker with the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. Recently, Tillman was elected general president of the fraternity.

Originally initiated into the brotherhood at Dillard University in 1985, Tillman learned the value of being a brother in "good standing" from mentors who were instrumental in his initiation and development.

While Tillman was vice president of the Alphas’ Midwestern branch, it was ranked as the No. 1 region in the organization. His “Roadmap to Excellence” plan was instituted as an annual agenda for the Alphas. Tillman has been a leader, facilitator and speaker at several Alpha Advisors workshops. He was also the original associate dean of the College of Business and Technology for Alpha University and is currently contributing to the Organizational Effectiveness Subcommittee for Performance Measures and Indicators.

Ortique trial centerIn honor of Black History Month, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal will hold court at Dillard University to hear oral arguments on five pending cases. The session is part of an ongoing effort to educate students and the public about the work of the appellate court. The session will convene at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6 in the Justice Revius O. Ortique Jr. Mock Trial Center. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal Judges Dennis Bagneris, Terri Love and Madeleine Landrieu will hear the oral arguments.

“Justice Ortique was a judicial trailblazer, civil rights activist, and mentor to many judges, and we are honored to hold oral arguments at a location that recognizes him and his contributions to Louisiana law and public service,” Love said.

The late Ortique was the first African-American elected to serve on the Louisiana Supreme Court. As an attorney and judge, he engaged in many landmark decisions. The Justice Revius O. Ortique Jr. Mock Trial Center grew out of Dillard University’s commitment to undergraduate students who seek careers in law, government service, criminal justice, social work, public policy, and environmental justice.

In advance of the oral arguments, Love and attorney Adria Kimbrough, wife of Dillard President Walter Kimbrough, will host an information session on Jan. 31 at noon in the West Wing of Kearny Hall. “The information session will give students and the public an overview of the appellate court process and an opportunity to ask questions,” Love said.

Both events are free and open to the public. Students are encouraged to attend.

Thompson Elloie

Dillard alumnae Pearlie H. Elloie and Dr. Barbara Guillory Thompson were honored and celebrated with Lifetime Achievement Awards at the MLK Convocation on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at Dillard University. Tulane President Dr. Scott Cowen presented Ms. Elloie with her award, along with the Reverend Wm. Wildes, President of Loyola University. Dr. Thompson was presented her award from Dillard President Dr. Walter Kimbrough and Xavier President, Dr. Norman Francis. 

Earlier in the day, Dr. Thompson and Ms. Elloie shared their experiences in helping to desegregate Tulane University, at a luncheon with Dillard facutly, staff and students. Both alumnae praised Dillard for providing them with the tools to succeed and the support to go forward and broaden their education.  Although they were part of a class action suit against Tulane, both women agreed they were "in the right place at the right time" when it came time to apply for graduate school at Tulane. Elloie became the first African-American to complete the two-year graduate program in social work at the Tulane University School of Social Work. Thompson completed the requirements for the Ph.D. degree by writing a dissertation on "The Black Family: A Case for Change and Survival in White America".


 
Delta Sigma Theta Celebrates 100 years PDF Print E-mail

DeltaCynthiaDancesOn January 13, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. will celebrate 100 years of sisterhood and public service. To kickoff this historic occasion, the Delta Centennial Torch Tour stopped in New Orleans the weekend of January 4, 2013 with a visit to Dillard University.

An actual torch is being carried from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. with many stops in between underscoring the role that Delta Sigma Theta has played from the Women’s Suffrage to the Civil Rights Movements to advances in education and technology. New Orleans is the second stop on the Tour, which will end in Washington, D.C. during the Sorority’s 51st National Convention, July 11 – 17, 2013. Several events were planned, illustrating how New Orleans Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta and the City of New Orleans have partnered to build a stronger community.

On Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Delta Centennial Torch Tour moved through the City of New Orleans “Illuminating Our Community,” stopping at three of the city’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities: Xavier University of Louisiana (9:50 a.m. to 10:50 a.m.), Southern University at New Orleans (12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.), and Dillard University (2 p.m. to 3 p.m.). These sites were selected because they are significant to African Americans, members of Delta Sigma Theta, and to many across the nation.

Each of the stops included a brief program and featured Delta Sigma Theta’s current National President and Dillard Alumna, Cynthia Butler-McIntyre, along with music and other national, regional and local luminaries. In addition, the motorcade passed by Flint-Goodridge Senior Citizens Facility, the site of the first African American nursing degree program in Louisiana and the only hospital that African American physicians could practice, and New Zion Baptist Church, the birthplace of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, as well as, Martin Luther King Jr. Monument, Gilbert Academy and other historical sites.

The New Orleans Alumnae Chapter President of the Deltas, Rachel Mercadel, also a Dillard Alumna and a current staff member, joined Butler-McIntyre for many events.
