Tulane SoPA, New Leaders Council partner to develop inclusive leaders
The Tulane University School of Professional Advancement (Tulane SoPA) and the New Leaders Council have partnered to increase access to educational opportunities for inclusive, equity-focused, cross-sector leaders. The new collaboration strengthens the quality and breadth of academic programs that support civic engagement and leadership and will offer a 20% discount for courses taken towards the Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree.
“Tulane SoPA and New Leaders Council are like-minded organizations that offer changemakers the ability to grow their skills and become leaders of the future, today.”
— Halima Leak Francis, Public Administration Program Director
“We believe in partnerships that create opportunities for continuous growth and community among proximate leaders,” said Karen Pandy-Cherry, New Leaders Council’s Vice President of Programs. “We are excited about providing champions of equity and civic progress the ability to further their education at Tulane SoPA.”
On March 15, Tulane SoPA and New Leaders Council hosted a virtual information session for prospective students. A recording of that session is available below.
