Equity Thursdays

Equity Thursdays is a weekly conversation and lunch series hosted by the Center for Academic Equity (provided free of charge)! We offer workshops, presentations, and discussions led by members of the Tulane community and guests from the GNO. Join us as we discuss cutting edge research, connect to distinctive academic opportunities, and provide a forum for reflection on the intersection of identity and the academic experience. We welcome students, faculty, and staff to come to Equity Thursdays and join the CAE community!

Equity Thursdays takes place on the first floor of the newly renovated Richardson Building every Thursday from 12:30 to 1:30 PM CST.
