Mission

SoPA offers high quality, distinctive undergraduate and graduate professional programs to a diverse student population in New Orleans and beyond.

The school dates back to 1886, when it was founded as the outreach division of Tulane with a mission to offer courses to teachers. While the school’s offerings have greatly expanded and changed over time, its focus on programs relevant to working adults has remained.
