On November 11, Dillard's Board of Trustees met for their annual fall meeting. The University's new president, Dr. Rochelle Ford, added a wrinkle to the meeting by taking the board members for a tour of the campus and engaging them in interactive exercises. "I don't want this to be a dog and pony show," said Ford the day of the meeting. The eighth president of Dillard wanted the board to see every aspect of the campus including areas that need to be addressed. To view the photo story in its entirety, CLICK HERE.

One of the challenges that President Rochelle Ford issued to the Board of Trustees was to "think big" about Dillard. In a session led by Dr. Nia Haydel, Complete College America's vice president for alliance engagement and institutional transformation, the question placed before Dillard's board was, "Who does Dillard want to be?"
