Tulane has launched its most ambitious fundraising campaign in the university's 184-year history. "Only the Audacious, The campaign for an ever bolder Tulane" kicked off in December with a $1.3 billion goal.
Tulane is one of the nation's leading research universities—and has been for more than a century. Research here isn't just the province of graduate students and faculty. Undergraduate research plays a vital role as well. With investment from campaign donors, Tulane will continue on the leading edge of discovery.
Three Tulane professors and their students exemplify how dedicated teachers change the way students understand and act in the world—and vice versa. This alchemy is the essence of the university and requires continual reinvestment and reinvention.
Better opportunities are on tap for minority and first-generation students at Tulane, thanks to initiatives like the Center for Academic Equity and the university's commitment to awarding more scholarship aid.
The Commons—including a spacious communal dining hall, multipurpose meeting spaces and a unified home for the many components of the Newcomb College Institute—is under construction in the heart of the uptown campus.
