The Value in Giving
Thanks to the support of our donors, Dillard University remains a truly amazing academic and historic institution.
Our world-class nursing program is one of the oldest in Louisiana; our digital media and film projects have drawn collaborations from filmmaker Spike Lee and actor Wendell Pierce; our late alumnus Justice Revius O. Ortique was the first African-American to be elected to the Supreme Court of Louisiana; and since Katrina we have built two eco-friendly, LEED gold-certified buildings (the Professional Schools Building and our First Student Center)
