Welcome from the Dean

Suri Duitch

Dear SoPA Students,

I hope that you are well and having a great semester. Here in Louisiana, more and more people are becoming eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, and New Orleans is starting to move into the next phase of normality, which is exciting.

This week's big news is a preview of our new Uptown spaces for students, faculty and staff in the renovated Richardson Hall. We look forward to welcoming both on-ground and online students there soon!

Thanks to those of you who supported us to once again have a record-setting day of fundraising during Tulane's annual Give Green day!



Welcome to Our New Space in Richardson Hall!
