This series consists of records--created primarily by Karen Jezierny, Director of Public Affairs—in both paper and digital formats pertaining to Dillard University Relief Efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Jezierny chiefly led Princeton's role in the partnership with Dillard University, a historically black college or university (HBCU) in New Orleans, Louisiana. Brown University, led at the time by former Princeton professor and dean Ruth Simmons, was initially involved in the relief effort as well. These records provide initial information as the effort began as well as ongoing efforts including speeches and press releases containing updates throughout the process. Also included are the visit agenda and itinerary for Marvalene Hughes, President of Dillard University, to Princeton's campus. All of these records were used by Karen Jezierny as she supported and led the initiative.
