Dear SoPA Students,
I hope that you had safe and enjoyable holidays, and a restful break from classes. Welcome, again, to our new students, and best wishes to everyone for a productive spring 2021 semester.
I have a special announcement to make - I am convening a small group of current SoPA students to serve as an advisory board, and hope that you will apply. This Dean's Student Advisory Board will meet at least once a semester by Zoom, and will serve as "kitchen cabinet" for advising me on important issues such as the school's response to the current pandemic, current calls for greater racial equity, and how to improve student support. Here is a link to a page describing the board and to the application form, which requires one letter of recommendation. I welcome applicants from all SoPA programs, both undergraduate and graduate, online and on-campus, and again, hope that you will consider applying. Applications are due Friday, February 12th, 2021.
COVID-19 Testing: Students who are in online-only degree and certificate programs are automatically opted out of COVID-19 testing requirements (though you will receive daily text messages). If you have been incorrectly categorized (i.e. you are online-only and not coming to campus, so do not want to participate in testing, or you have not received a testing email and do want to participate in testing), please email CHTestResults@tulane.edu with your name and student ID (i.e. Splash card) number to change your participation status.
