Daniel C. Thompson/Samuel DuBois Cook Honors Program


Dillard University’s Daniel C. Thompson/Samuel DuBois Cook Honors Program is dedicated to providing a stellar curricular and co-curricular experience for its most academically talented students.  Its philosophy, “we learn not for school, but for life,” forms the foundation of belief for the Program.  This philosophical basis declares the program’s dual commitment to nurturing the intellectual potential of highly motivated students and to  providing  a  moral  and  ethical framework  for  responsible  social  activism  in  a multicultural, global context.
