Current Programs

Our department secures funding for programs that enrich the experiences of our students and connect us to the community. DU WISHES and LS-LAMP, for instance, are two of our most notable outreach programs. DU WISHES, or Dillard University Women In STEM High School Experience in Summer, is a summer program for high school females of color who are interested in physics and optics. Its goal is to increase the number of African American women in STEM fields. Meanwhile, LS-LAMP targets undergraduate STEM majors with the goal of increasing the number of graduates and placing these students into graduate schools. In addition, our department is involved in a number of major research projects that receive outside support, giving our students unique access to real-world experiences with advanced equipment and research. In particular, our Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) research program reached a new funding level at $913,545, providing even more opportunities for our students.
