Team Equity

Team Equity coalition is a strategic partnership of centers, departments, and institutes across Tulane’s campus that are central to creating a more inclusive student experience. This alliance serves as a forum for reflection and continued learning around issues of concern within our community. Team Equity works to develop protocols, collaborate on initiatives, disseminate information, and identify best practices in support of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Through Team Equity, units across campus can support recruitment, training, and assessment efforts.

The Center for Academic Equity welcomes new additions to the Team Equity community. Chairs and department heads may request to join the collaborative by email. They can choose one or two individuals to represent their unit at Team Equity meetings. For more information, please contact Center for Academic Equity Director Paula Booke.
