I believe Tulane University needs to be a leader in welcoming students from other countries, cultures and every socioeconomic background. It enriches the lives of the students who come here, whether they grew up in New Orleans or are arriving in this country for the very first time.
It’s a banner year for Tulane English professors — Zachary Lazar and Jesmyn Ward. Their novels have been selected as the 2019 books to read citywide in New Orleans and Philadelphia, respectively. Vengeance by Lazar is the “One Book, One New Orleans” selection. In addition to distributing free copies of the book to people who can’t afford to buy them, the program will present a series of events to encourage people to read and engage with the book, which is a tale of crime and imprisonment, where fact and fiction are hard to tell apart.https://tulane.it/two-books-two-cities
More than 200 alumni and parents representing their industries, companies and careers connected with more than 150 students in New York during fall break at “Tulane Takeover,” a career conference coordinated by Tulane’s Office of Career Wave Programs. Tulane Takeovers also were scheduled for Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Miami, Boston, New Orleans and Chicago this year.https://tulane.it/tulane-takeover-nyc
