SoPA and Tulane University are excited to announce the transition back to campus for the fall semester. While we encourage students to continue to meet with advisors, faculty and staff remotely, our offices will be open for limited in-person visits. Beginning Monday August 3, Elmwood offices are open 8:30A.M.– 5:00P.M. Gibson Hall offices will remain closed as Tulane renovates new space for SoPA on the Uptown campus. All faculty and staff are working and available.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the SoPA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Return to Campus page for updates.

A Message from Dean Suri Duitch

Welcome to the School of Professional Advancement at Tulane University. We are proud of Tulane’s long history of educating working adults, and build on that history by continuing to introduce and support academic programs that reflect evolving technologies and practices in the field. In choosing SoPA you are choosing up-to-date curricula, faculty who are experts in their fields, peers with whom you can grow professionally, and access to highly responsive academic and career counselors, all of these worthy of the Tulane University name.

In addition to all of this, our school and its mission and values are in part shaped by the history and culture of New Orleans and our geographic location at the mouth of the Mississippi River Delta. New Orleans’ challenges are the challenges of our world in the 21st century, among them navigating diversity, building economic vibrancy in a globalizing world, and managing climate change. Coming to SoPA is one way to benefit from the expertise, experiences and events of this special region. This is equally true online and on-ground, whether you live in the city’s Garden District or are fitting in degree study while deployed overseas.

So join us!
