When Professor Kelly Grant came to Tulane in 2001, she brought a robust professional background as an advertising copywriter, radio producer, and communications consultant, and her students benefit from her practical, experience-based approach to teaching communications. Kelly Grant’s research focuses on pedagogical practices, and she loves empowering students with the skills and confidence they need to be clear presenters and writers – even if they don’t see themselves as natural-born Hemingways. Kelly Grant is the Associate Dean of Retention and Strategic Initiatives at Newcomb-Tulane College.
