The Office of the Provost and African American Studies are hosting a reception today for Marvalene Hughes, president of Dillard University in New Orleans. The reception will be held from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in Mason Hall, Room D5, and all are invited.

Dillard University is one of the academic institutions forced to close after being devastated by flooding and other storm damage from Hurricane Katrina. Hughes, who has been working out of two offices, one in Washington, D.C., and one in Atlanta, is preparing to reopen her campus in the spring. Colleagues and friends from various institutions have offered assistance and support in various forms.

Those who wish to contribute to Dillard University’s Hurricane Katrina Disaster Relief Fund will be able to do so at this reception. Checks should be made out to Dillard University.

Call Marcy Glover at 703-993-8770 to RSVP.
