Tulane ranked No. 3 among medium-size schools on the Peace Corps’ list of top volunteer-producing colleges and universities in 2019. Tulane also ranked No. 1 on the list among schools that produce volunteers from graduate programs. Currently, there are 44 Tulanians volunteering in countries around the world. Since the Peace Corps’ founding in 1961, nearly 600 Tulane alumni have served as volunteers abroad.https://tulane.it/peace-corps-volunteers
Tulane School of Architecture has received a $2 million gift to establish the Saul A. Mintz Global Research Studios, a new program that will give students an opportunity to work internationally on critical global issues.
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.
