Dillard University

New Orleans, Louisiana

Dillard University is a private, historically black, comprehensive undergraduate institution, having as its purpose the development of graduates who are broadly educated, culturally aware, concerned with improving the human condition, and able to meet the competitive demands of a global and technologically advanced society. To achieve this purpose, the university strives to create and maintain an academic climate that is conducive to the pursuit of scholarship through programs of excellence anchored in the liberal arts.

Dillard's history begins in 1869. On June 12, 1869, the American Missionary Association of the Congregational Church founded Straight University; on July 8, 1869 the Freedman's Aid Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church established Union Normal School. Straight University and Union Normal School were subsequently renamed Straight College and New Orleans University, respectively. Initially, both institutions offered instruction on the elementary level, then expanded to include the secondary, collegiate, and professional levels.

On June 6, 1930, New Orleans University and Straight College merged to form Dillard University, which elected to follow the practices of the two parent institutions in making no distinction as to race, religion or sex in the admission of students or in the selection of faculty.
