Welcome from the Assistant Dean for Student Support and Success

Vanessa Rodriguez

Dear SoPA Students,

Things are hopping over here at SoPA and graduation is so close we can smell it! For those graduating, please make sure to read through all of the communications coming your way about the ceremony. Faculty and staff are working hard to commemorate your achievements this unique year and up to date information is released as soon as possible. But before we celebrate, we want to make sure you are as prepared as possible for upcoming exams. Remember, communication is key so don't forget to reach out to your professors, advisors, and fellow classmates for assistance.

Onwards and upwards!

Sincerely,
Vanessa Rodriguez

Recruit New Students!

Sheila Gold

Are you a member of our student recruitment incentive program?

As current SoPA students you are our best recruiters for new students. Refer a student to the School of Professional Advancement and receive a free gift! This is how it works:

  1. Refer a student to apply to the School of Professional Advancement.
  2. Ask the referred applicant to include your name in their application to SoPA. There is a specific question on the application that asks each applicant if anyone referred them to apply. This is where your name goes.
  3. Your referred applicant needs to be admitted to SoPA and enroll in classes.
  4. You get a gift!

If you have any questions, send me an e-mail at sgold@tulane.edu and I will be happy to chat with you.
