Welcome from the Assistant Dean for Student Support and Success

Vanessa Rodriguez

Dear SoPA Students,

It's Mardi Gras season and although the city will celebrate differently this year, New Orleanians are banding together to support our culture bearers and keep traditions alive. Those who live in the New Orleans region and can safely do so may be exploring homes in the Krewe of House Floats all over the city. If you are, we'd love to see you celebrating! Please send us pics of your 2021 Mardi Gras joy, whatever it may be, to Madison Duncan.

With admiration,
Vanessa Rodriguez

Dean's Student Advisory Board

Don't forget to submit your application to the Dean's Student Advisory Board. This Dean's Student Advisory Board will meet at least once a semester by Zoom, and will serve as "kitchen cabinet" for advising the dean 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. We welcome applicants from all SoPA programs, both undergraduate and graduate, online and on-campus, and again, hope that you will consider applying. Applications (including a letter of recommendation) are due Friday, February 12th, 2021.
