Academic Equity event

Poster Symposium 

 Rebranded as the Tulane Idea Symposium (TIS), this event offers Tulane University undergraduates an opportunity to highlight achievements in their chosen fields,   experience presenting in an academic forum, and foster faculty relationships with faculty mentors and fellow undergraduate presenters.  The Idea Symposium invites students from the full breadth of disciplines housed within the institution, showcasing scientific rigor and creative talents of students in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and  natural sciences.


Equity Thursdays

Equity Thursdays offer weekly presentations by members of the Tulane University community and invited guests from Greater New Orleans. Faculty, Students, Staff, Alumni and Friends share information regarding topics of academic access. Equity Thursdays meet in Cudd Hall, Room 203.  The sessions discuss cutting edge research, enrichment opportunity and offer a forum for reflection on the intersection of identity and the academic experience. The Center for Academic Equity serves lunch from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM. We welcome students, faculty, and staff to come to Equity Thursdays and join the Center for Academic Equity community.
