ABOUT TULANE

Welcome to Tulane University. Founded in 1834, Tulane is one of the most highly regarded and selective
independent research universities in the United States. A member of the prestigious Association of
American Universities, we take pride in
being a part of this select group of universities with “pre
-
eminent programs of graduate and professional education and scholarly research.” Our schools and
colleges offer undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees in the liberal arts, science and
en
gineering, architecture, business, law, social work, medicine and public health and tropical medicine.


Research in many disciplines has flourished at Tulane through the establishment of centers such as the
Newcomb College Institute, the Roger Thayer
Stone Center for Latin American Studies, the Middle
American Research Institute, the Tulane/Xavier Center for Bioenvironmental Research, the Murphy
Institute, the Tulane Cancer Center, the Tulane Center for Gene Therapy and the Newcomb College
Center for R
esearch on Women. The university is ranked by the Carnegie Foundation for the
Advancement of Teaching as a university with “very high research activity.” Of more than 4,300 higher
educational institutions rated by the foundation, Tulane remains in a presti
gious category that includes
only 2 percent of universities nationwide.

Tulane strives to connect its values and mission to the needs of the city of New Orleans, the state, and
the nation. Community involvement is now more important than ever as the univer
sity participates in
the rebirth of New Orleans. Faculty and staff lend their expertise to rebuilding efforts and students gain
real
-
world experience while putting their skills to use in the community.

The undergraduate experience is marked by close studen
t
-
faculty interaction, a variety of campus
programs, and a diverse student body representing all 50 states and more than 40 different countries.
Tulane undergraduates will have full
-
time faculty teaching them right from the start. When you combine
that kin
d of educational experience with the opportunity to be involved in the largest urban renewal
project ever undertaken in our country, you get a college experience found

only at Tulane, only in New
Orleans
.

With 4,400 employees, Tulane is the largest employe
r in New Orleans. The university is dedicated to
attracting and retaining the very best faculty, staff and students as we move forward toward our goal of
universal recognition as one of the world’s most preeminent educational and research institutions.
