Dillard University Announces Official Partner

Dillard University and OHUB Announce Partnership >>








As part of the University's vision to advance healthy, safe, and innovative communities, Dillard has partnered with the Son of a Saint organization. The one-of-its-kind partnership features an opportunity for university students to work with at-risk youth while earning community service hours they may apply toward graduation requirements.The partnership also has a unique concentration on supporting the parent and guardian of at-risk youth in the program with information for affordable private college tuition and resources to build generational wealth and wellness.On Sunday, August 27, 2023, the University hosted the partnership's installation, "A Son Day at Dillard", an all-day event to introduce high school juniors and seniors to higher-learning experiences and provide developmental support and exposure that, due to systemic barriers, they have yet to experience. To accomplish this mission, the University has prepared a 30–45-minute mock college course in economics and financial health, taught by Business School Dean Dr. Dorian Williams, and a robotics demonstration by Dr. Dennis Sigur. The event also included a two-hour session for the parent/guardian to learn about the University's degree and certificate programs and career and professional development resources for students’ post-college graduation.
