A Message from the Vice President for Student Success

The Division of Student Success provides support for all students to enable them to successfully meet their personal, academic and professional objectives throughout their college experience. Our mission is to improve the quality of student life and education.

The division houses 10 administrative units, each providing the necessary services required to ensure that student success is attainable. The units include Enrollment Management, Financial Aid and Scholarships, Student Support Services, Upward Bound, Educational Talent Search, Career and Professional Development, Records and Registration, Center for Student Performance, University Chapel, and Vision Quest.

Our core value is to recruit and retain students with strong academic, personal, and social skills and to support those students by providing financial services, and academic and career assistance. By our definition, a “successful student” is one who graduates from Dillard University fully equipped to be a strong citizen and future leader in graduate school or the world of work.

At Dillard University, student success is everyone's business.

The Value of a Dillard Education

As a private institution, we know prospective students and their families must pay close attention to the investment they make in higher education. As one of America's HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities), we are proud to offer a distinct opportunity to our students.

Let the words of our students and faculty show you the opportunities that Dillard offers.

The Opportunity to...

Conduct research with faculty as undergraduate students.
“We have what we call a systemic mentoring program to align our faculty with the students to do research. Through the academic year, every faculty member has one or two students to do research with them. Students travel to present their research and receive stipends for their work.”

Abdalla Darwish
Professor of Physics
Chair, Physics and Pre-Engineering Department

Experience diversity in the context of an HBCU.
“Our students comment that when they came they assumed Dillard wouldn’t be diverse, but then they see that the student body is diverse in terms of where they come from and what they experienced there.”

Gail Bowman
Dillard University Chaplain
Assistant Professor of Religion
Project Director for Vision Quest

Hit the ground running.
“I already have an offer from an investment banking firm here in New Orleans. I’ll probably be with them for close to a year or two and then I plan to go onto pursue an MBA and then a doctorate.”

Kael Saloy
Economics and Finance Major
Class of 2008

Join a community that cares deeply about your success.
“At Dillard, you’re going to graduate because that’s what we care about. It’s not just me. It’s the instructors. It’s our Office of Enrollment Management. It’s President Hughes. Dillard is a family of people who care about where each student is going.”

Kiki Baker Barnes
  Athletic Director and Head Coach of the Women’s Basketball Team

“It’s a very one-on-on based experience. You get to know your faculty. You get to know your mentors, your advisors, your administrators. You see them in the cafeteria. They eat with you, they talk with you outside of class, outside of the administrative building and that sort of personal connection makes it easier for you… especially for an international student.”

Timothy James Shankar Ramnerine
Biology Major
Class of 2009
