Tulane University is a private, nonsectarian research university located in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States. Founded as a public medical college in 1834, the school grew into a comprehensive university and was eventually privatized under the endowments of Paul Tulane and Josephine Louise Newcomb in the late 19th century.

addition of a law department, it became The University of Louisiana in 1847,[1] a public university. In 1851 the university established an "Academic Department." The university closed for three years during the American Civil War. After reopening, it went through a period of financial challenges because of an extended agricultural depression in the South which affected all of the economy. Paul Tulane donated extensive real estate within New Orleans for the support of education; this donation led to the establishment of a Tulane Educational Fund (TEF), whose board of administrators sought to support the University of Louisiana instead of establishing a new university. In response, through the influence of former Civil War general Randall Lee Gibson, the Louisiana state legislature transferred control of the University of Louisiana to the administrators of the TEF in 1884.[1] This act created the Tulane University of Louisiana. It is the only American university that has been converted from a state public institution to a private institution.[5] In 1885, a Graduate Division started. One year later, gifts from Josephine Louise Newcomb totaling over $3.6 million led to the establishment of H. Sophie Newcomb Memorial College within Tulane University. Newcomb was the first coordinate college for women in the United States, and became a model for such institutions as Pembroke College and Barnard College.[6] In 1894 a College of Technology formed. In the same year the university moved to its present-day uptown campus on St. Charles Avenue, five miles by streetcar from downtown.[6]

In 1901, the cornerstone was laid for the F.W. Tilton Library, endowed by the New Orleans businessman and philanthropist Frederick William Tilton (1821–1890). An Architecture Department originated within the College of Technology in 1907. One year later, Schools of Dentistry and Pharmacy appeared, both temporarily: Dentistry ended in 1928, and Pharmacy six years later.[6] In 1914, Tulane established a College of Commerce, the first business school in the South.[6] In 1925 Tulane created the Graduate School. Two years later, the university set up a School of Social Work, the first in the Deep South.[6] The house of Tulane’s president on St. Charles Avenue was once the mansion of Sam Zemurray, who was the head of the United Fruit Company, which became infamous for its exploitation of Latin American countries as "banana republics." University College dates from 1942. The School of Architecture grew out of Engineering in 1950. In 1958 the university was elected to the Association of American Universities, an organization of leading research universities. The School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine dates from 1967 and is the oldest school of its kind in the country. Tulane’s School of Tropical Medicine is the only one of its kind in the country. On April 23, 1975, President Gerald R. Ford, Jr., spoke at Tulane University’s Fogelman Arena at the invitation of Congressman F. Edward Hebert, powerful representative of Louisiana’s 1st Congressional District. During the historic speech, Ford announced that the Vietnam War was "finished as far as America is concerned"- one week before the fall of Saigon. Ford drew parallels to the Battle of New Orleans, saying that such positive activity could do for America’s morale what the battle did in 1815.[7]

In July 2004, Tulane received two $30 million donations to its endowment, the largest individual or combined gifts in the university’s history. The donations came from Jim Clark, a member of the university’s board of trustees and founder of Netscape, and David Filo, a graduate of its School of Engineering and co-founder of Yahoo!.

A record 34,000 students applied for admission to Tulane’s class of 2012. The average SAT score of the class was 1365, marking a rise of approximately 30 points above the average of the class of 2011. In February 2009, the Tulane admissions office reported that it had received approximately 40,000 applications for the class of 2013 and that it expects that the class of 2013 will be the strongest in the university’s history, with an average SAT score approaching 1400. A fund-raising campaign called "Promise & Distinction" raised $730.6 million as of October 3, 2008, increasing the university’s total endowment to more than $1.1 billion; by March 2009, Yvette Jones, Tulane’s Chief Operating Officer, told Tulane’s Staff Advisory Council that the endowment "has lost close to 37%", affected by the late-2000s recession.[3] In late November 2008, the university announced that donors are funding the elimination of McAllister Drive, the street that runs through the middle of campus, in an effort to transform the core of the campus into a vibrant, pedestrian environment.

In 2009, democratic political analyst James Carville joined the faculty of Political Science and began teaching a course on a competitive application basis.[8]

Notable firsts
• 1850 – J. Lawrence Smith invented the inverted microscope.[9] • 1851 – John L. Riddell invented the first practical microscope to allow binocular viewing through a single objective lens.[10] • 1884 – Tulane University reconfigures from a state public institution to a private university. Tulane is the only school in the country to make this type of transfer.[11] • 1912 – Tulane School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine is established, which became the first School of Public Health in the U.S.[12] • 1990 – Tulane Law School becomes the first law school in the United States to mandate pro bono work as a graduation requirement.[13] • 2001 – The Tulane Center for Gene Therapy started as the first major center in the U.S. to focus on research using adult stem cells. • 2006 – Tulane is the first Carnegie ranked “high research activity” institution to have an undergraduate public service graduation requirement.[14]

Hurricane Katrina
As a result of Hurricane Katrina in August 2005 and its damaging effects on New Orleans, most of the university was closed for the second time in its history—the first being during the Civil War. The closing affected the first semester of the school calendar year. The School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine’s distance learning programs and courses stayed active. The School of Medicine relocated to Houston, Texas for a year. Aside from student athletes attending college classes together on the same campuses, most undergraduate and graduate students dispersed to campuses throughout the U.S. Facing a budget shortfall, the Board of Administrators announced a "Renewal Plan" in December 2005 to reduce its annual operating budget and create a "student-centric" campus. Addressing the school’s commitment to New Orleans, a course credit involving "community service" became a requirement for an undergraduate degree. In May 2006, graduation ceremonies included commencement speakers former Presidents George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, who commended the students for their willingness to return to Tulane and serve New Orleans in its renewal.

Tulane University, as a private institution, is governed by the Board of Tulane (also known as the Board of Administrators). The board comprises more than 30 regular members (plus several members emeriti) and the university president. See the complete, up-todate list of board members. There have been 14 presidents of Tulane since the establishment of the Tulane Education Fund in 1884.

Tulane’s uptown campus, known for its many large live oak trees and architecturally historic buildings, was established in the 1890s and occupies more than 110 acres 2). The campus architecture consists (0.45 km of several styles, including Richardsonian Romanesque, Elizabethan, Italian

along with the schools of Architecture and Social Work. The middle of the campus, between Freret and Willow Streets and bisected by McAlister Place and Newcomb Place, serves as the center of campus activities. The Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life, Fogelman Arena, McAlister Auditorium, Howard-Tilton Memorial Library, most of the student residence halls and academic buildings populate the center of campus. The facilities for the Freeman School of Business line McAlister Place and sit next to the Tulane Law School. The middle campus is also home to the historic Newcomb College Campus, which sits between Newcomb Place and Broadway. The Newcomb campus was designed by New York architect James Gamble Rogers, noted for his work with Yale University’s campus.[15] The Newcomb campus is home to Tulane’s performing and fine arts venues. The back of campus, between Willow Street and South Claiborne, is home to two residence halls, Reily Recreation Center and Turchin Stadium, the home of Green Wave baseball. After Hurricane Katrina, Tulane has continued to build new facilities and renovate old spaces on its campus. The newest residence hall, Lallage Feazel Wall Residential College, was completed in August 2005 and took in its first students when Tulane reopened in January 2006. The Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life was renovated to be a green, environmentally friendly building and opened for student use in January 2007.[16] Other facilities of Tulane include: • Tulane University Health Sciences campus, located in the downtown New Orleans Central Business District between the Louisiana Superdome and Canal Street in 18 mid/high-rise buildings, which houses the School of Medicine, the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, and the main campus of the Tulane Medical Center; • Tulane University Square, 80,000 square feet (7,400 m2) of space and 6 acres (24,000 m2) of surrounding land, is located on Broadway and Leake Avenue adjacent to the Mississippi River.[17] • Tulane National Primate Research Center in Covington, La., one of eight such centers funded by the National Institutes of Health;

The Academic Quad behind Gibson Hall of Tulane University is shaded by many large live oak trees. Renaissance, Brutalist Modern, and Ultramodern styles. Though there isn’t a coherent building design across the entire campus, most buildings make use of similar materials. The front campus buildings use Indiana White Limestone or orange brick for exteriors, while the middle campus buildings are mostly adorned in red St. Joe brick, the staple of Newcomb College Campus buildings. The uptown campus faces St. Charles Avenue directly opposite Audubon Park and reaches to South Claiborne Avenue. It is intersected by Freret and Willow Streets. Loyola University is directly adjacent to Tulane, on the downriver side. Audubon Place, where the President of Tulane resides, is on the upriver side. The centerpiece of the Academic Quad is the first academic building, Gibson Hall,

Planned improvements
In late November 2008, the university announced that donors are funding the elimination of the street that runs through the middle of the Uptown New Orleans campus in an effort to transform the core of the campus "into a vibrant, pedestrian environment." The street will be replaced with a crushedgranite surface adorned with Japanese magnolias and irises. The project is scheduled for completion in October 2009.[18] The project’s blueprint can be viewed here. Coincidentally, in late November 2008 the City of New Orleans announced plans to add bicycle lanes to the St. Charles Avenue corridor that runs in front of campus.[19]

In May 2007, Tulane Law announced a Strategic Plan to increase student selectivity by gradually reducing the incoming JD class size from a historical average of 350 students per year to a target of 250 students per year within several years.[23] Meanwhile, the The global financial crisis of 2007-2009 has reportedly led to an increase in student selectivity in and of itself, as applications to law schools across the nation are estimated to have risen by 5% between 2008 and 2009, including a 15% increase at Tulane Law alone.[24] School of Liberal Arts The School of Liberal Arts consists of 15 departments and 22 interdisciplinary programs. All of the departments offer an undergraduate major and minor. • Tulane’s Latin American studies program was ranked first in the country by the Gourman Report.[25] Tulane’s Department of Spanish and Portuguese is ranked second nationally. • According to the 2005 Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index, Tulane’s French program was ranked 6th in the country. This index ranks departmental faculty at research universities based on their awards, grants, and publications.[26] School of Medicine The Tulane University School of Medicine was founded in 1834 and is the 15th oldest medical school in the United States. It has highly selective admissions, accepting only 175 medical students from more than 9,000 applications. It comprises 20 academic departments: Anesthesiology, Biochemistry, Family and Community Medicine, Medicine, Microbiology and Immunology, Neurosurgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Orthopaedics, Otolaryngology, Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Pediatrics, Pharmacology, Physiology, Psychiatry and Neurology, Radiology, Structural and Cellular Biology, Surgery and Urology. In 2008 US News and World Reports ranked the School of Medicine’s research at 55th.[27] School of Public Health The Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine is the oldest public health school in the U.S. Although a program in hygiene was initiated in 1881, the

In 1919 the separate school ceased to be an independent unit and was merged with the College of Medicine. By 1967 the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine reestablished as a separate academic unit of Tulane. In the fall of 2006, the School of Public Health began admitting undergraduate students. US News & World Report’s 2007 edition ranked the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine 13th among public health programs. School of Science and Engineering The Tulane University School of Science and Engineering offers degrees in biological chemistry, biomedical engineering, cell and molecular biology, chemical and biomolecular engineering, chemistry, earth and environmental science, ecology and evolutionary biology, environmental biology, environmental geoscience, geology, mathematics, neuroscience, physics, psychology, and statistics. In addition, a minor is offered in engineering science.

nationally.[31] The National Institutes of Health ranks funding to Tulane at 79th.[32]

School of Social Work In 1941 the Southern School of Social Sciences and Public Services was the first training program for social workers in the Deep South. By 1927 the school became a separate program with a two-year master of arts. The Tulane University School of Social Work has awarded the master of social work degrees to more than 4,700 students from all 50 of the United States and more than 30 other countries. School of Continuing Studies Tulane offers continuing education courses and associate’s and bachelor’s degrees through the Tulane School of Continuing Studies.

Overall university rankings and ratings include: • One of 195 U.S. universities recognized by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching with a "community engagement" classification.[33][34] • US News & World Report’s 2009 edition ranked Tulane’s overall undergraduate program 51st among "national universities." [35] • Tulane is ranked 32nd nationally by Forbes magazine in a study conducted by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity.[36] • Tulane holds four ratings from The Princeton Review: Great College Towns, Best in the Southeast, College With a Conscience, and Happiest Students.[37] • In Kaplan/Newsweek’s 2008 edition, Tulane was again rated among the "hottest" schools in the nation.

As part of the post-Hurricane Katrina Renewal Plan, the university initiated an extensive university-wide core curriculum. Three major elements of the university core are (1) TIDES classes which is a freshmen seminar, (2) a two-class sequence for public service, and (3) a capstone experience for students to apply knowledge in their fields of study. Many course requirements of the core curriculum can be certified through Advanced Placement (AP) exams or International Baccalaureate (IB) course credits, or placement exams in English and foreign languages offered by the university during orientation. Some schools have different core requirements (e.g., students in the School of Science and Engineering are required to take fewer language classes than students in the School of Liberal Arts).

Admission statistics
• 2008 undergraduate applications: 34,117[38] • 2008 freshman class size: 1,550[38] • SAT scores (middle 50%): 1880–2150[38] • ACT scores (middle 50%): 28–32[38] • Average SAT/ACT: 1365/31 • Acceptance rate: 27%[38] • 75% of Tulane’s student body comes from more than 500 miles (800 km) away.[4]

Tulane is a member of Conference USA in athletics and an official member of the NCAA Division I. Baseball and women’s volleyball are among its stronger sports. In 2008, Tulane reopened Greer Field at Turchin Stadium, a renovated baseball venue for its team. The baseball team consistently ranks among the top 25 in national polls such as Baseball America, USA Today/ESPN, and Collegiate Baseball. In 2001 and 2005, Tulane baseball finished with 56 wins and placed 5th at the College World Series. The women’s volleyball team, which plays in Fogelman Arena, won the 2008 Conference USA Championship tournament.[40] Fogelman Arena was renovated for basketball in the fall of 2006, and is expected to undergo another renovation to add more seats. The Green Wave football team went 12-0 in 1998, winning the Liberty Bowl and finishing the season ranked No. 5 in the nation. The Green Wave also won the Hawaii Bowl in 2002, the Liberty Bowl in 1970, and the 1935 Sugar Bowl. Tulane once used Tulane Stadium on the uptown campus that seated more than 80,000 people, held three Super Bowls, and was the home of the New Orleans Saints and the Sugar Bowl. The football team now plays in the refurbished Louisiana Superdome and occasionally plays at Tad Gormley Stadium, which provides an outdoor venue for many homecoming events. Tulane also participates in a variety of men’s and women’s intercollegiate sports such as basketball, track and cross country, swimming, tennis, and golf. Tulane’s graduation rate for its student-athletes consistently ranks among the top of Division I athletics programs. Most of the administrative and athletic support facilities (such as weight rooms, training center, locker rooms,

Student life
The student body of Tulane University is represented by the Associated Student Body (ASB). In 1998, the students of Tulane University voted by referendum to split the Associated Student Body (ASB) Senate into two separate houses, the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) and the Graduate and Professional Student Association (GAPSA). USG and GAPSA come together twice a semester to meet as the ASB Senate, where issues pertaining to the entire Tulane student body are discussed. The meetings of the ASB Senate are presided over by the ASB President, the only student that represents all students of Tulane University. The Jambalaya, Tulane’s yearbook, published annually since 1897, published its last edition (Volume 99) in 1995, because of funding and management problems. In the fall of 2003, the Jambalaya was reestablished as a student club, and in the Spring of 2004, the centennial edition of the Jambalaya was published. The staff now continues to publish a Jambalaya annually. The student-run radio station of the university, WTUL-FM, began broadcasting on campus in 1971. Tulane maintains 3,350 beds in 12 residence halls on its uptown campus for undergraduate students. Per the Renewal Plan instituted after Hurricane Katrina, Tulane requires all freshmen and sophomores to live on campus. Since freshmen and sophomores are required to live on campus, housing is not guaranteed for juniors and seniors and options are very limited. Most upperclass students choose to move off campus instead of trying to secure housing on campus.
