Welcome to the March 2012 edition of the Dillard Today E-Newsletter. Before we begin: look for Dillard in this month's issue of New Orleans Magazine! The Student Union and Health & Wellness Center was featured in an article on the best new architecture in the city. If you haven't seen this facility yet, you need to come to campus and check it out! I'd also like to direct your attention to dillard.edu for an update on campus construction projects, including the renovation of the Hartzell/Camphor and Straight Hall Dormitories. And one more reminder: Honors Convocation is scheduled for Tuesday, March 27 at 11 a.m. in Lawless Chapel. This annual ceremony recognizes those students who have achieved excellence in their studies. We'd love to see you there. Ex fide fortis!


Sincerely,

Mona Duffel-Jones

Crime and Punishment: African-Americans in a "Post-Racial" United States: March 20-22
From March 20-22, Dillard University will host Crime and Punishment: African-Americans in a "Post-Racial" (?) United States, a symposium designed to explore problems of crime and incarceration in the U.S. today, their outsized impact on the black community, and the dubious concept of our society as "post-racial." Criminal justice in New Orleans will also be addressed throughout three days of seminars and panel discussions.

Dr. James Turner (pictured), founding director of the Africana Studies and Research Center at Cornell University, will deliver the symposium's opening lecture, "From Mass Enslavement to Mass Segregation to Mass Incarceration." Dillard professors Dr. Allen Colón and Dr. Carroll Wiltz will convene the symposium.

All events will be held in the Georges Auditorium of the PSB on Dillard's campus, and are free and open to the public. Click here for a complete schedule of events.

The play uses poetry to tell the story of seven women and their struggles with love, faith and abuse. Before each performance, the cast and crew will pay tribute to a different female community leader as part of a new initiative called For NOLA Girls.

The show premieres on Friday, March 23 at 8 p.m. in Cook Theatre on Dillard's campus. It repeats at 8 p.m. on March 24, 30 and 31, with Sunday matinees at 3 p.m. on March 25 and April 1. For ticket information, call the Dillard University Box Office at

Perrault, a Dillard alumna from the class of 1960, owns Perrault Kiddy Kollege, a local pre-school program with two locations in the Gentilly area. They were chosen for their success and persistence in business pursuits, their history of philanthropy, and their service as role models for the New Orleans community.

Champions of the American Dream will be held on Thursday, March 29 at 5:30 p.m. in the Georges Auditorium. Both honorees will lecture on business entrepreneurship and participate in an audience Q&A session. A reception in the PSB's atrium will follow. This event is free and open to the public.

Dillard University Theatre to Produce Ntozake Shange’s

For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf
 
Six-Show Run Set for March 23 – April 1 in Cook Theatre;

New Orleans Women to Be Honored Before Each Performance
 
(New Orleans) The Dillard University Theatre Program will continue its 76th season this month with a six-show run of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf, Ntozake Shange’s award-winning 1975 drama. The show opens Friday, March 23 at 8 p.m. in Dillard’s Cook Theatre and runs through Sunday, April 1.

The play uses poetry and dance to tell the story of seven women and their struggles with love, faith and abuse. “The audience will experience the fears, joys, tears and laughter that all people can relate to,” says Patience Rayford, a Dillard alumna from the class of 2006, who is directing the production. “Ntozake Shange said, ‘Where there is woman, there is magic.’ That’s what we hope to bring to our audience.”

Before each performance, the cast and crew will pay tribute to a different woman from the greater New Orleans community as part of a new initiative, created by Rayford, called For NOLA Girls. Honorees will be selected for their work as social activists and entrepreneurs, and their influence in the community.

Rayford is available for interviews, as are other members of the show’s cast and crew.

Tickets are $15, and $10 for seniors and students. For ticket information, call the Dillard University Box Office at (504) 816-4857. Several school matinees will also be produced.

Your participation in the Honors Convocation is one of the primary obligations of a full-time faculty and is, thereby, listed on the academic calendar and contract as one of the many events you are required to attend.  Classes will be cancelled from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  Should a personal emergency arise that would interfere with attendance at this ceremony, faculty should contact the respective Dean and the Provost, immediately. 

LINE-UP
The faculty and staff must assemble in academic regalia by 10:45 a.m., in front of Rosenwald Hall.  The Faculty Marshals will arrange the order of the procession and will lead faculty and staff members to their reserved seats.  The procession will begin promptly at 11:00 a.m.  Faculty and staff members not in academic regalia will not be permitted to march into the Chapel with the faculty.   

In the processional, the Faculty Marshals will seat the students, followed by the student processional which is directed by the Student Marshals. When the students are seated, the University Marshals will lead the platform guests into the Chapel.

In the recessional, the platform party will proceed followed by the faculty, staff, and then the students. 

ATTIRE 
Academic regalia and dark colors are required for all participants in the academic procession.  Males should remove their caps prior to the invocation and place them on their heads just before marching out, after the benediction.

For rental of academic regalia you must reserve and pay Ms. Lucy Green in the Campus Bookstore.

Your participation is central to the continued success and reverence of this ceremony.  I hope to see each of you there.
