Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in ACTION

 

We are building a Tulane where we practice our lived values of equity, justice, inclusion, and anti-racism every day.

 

The Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) coordinates university-wide EDI and anti-racism efforts and collaborates with university leaders to create, implement, and evaluate programs designed to ensure every single community member can grow and thrive together.

 

We partner with campus schools and units to craft a vision for EDI and anti-racism that is unique to the Tulane community, and accountable to our place in New Orleans, the Gulf Region, and the world. In doing so, we engage our Tulane community in crucial, brave conversations about the most challenging issues of our times - including the impacts of racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, classism, xenoprejudice, and other intersectional societal inequities – to identify social change efforts we can make now and in the future.

 

On this website, you can find our EDI Office activities, initiatives, and resources and get connected to those across campus.

Signature Initiatives

 

A Plan for Now provides structure and direction for initiatives already underway and identifies actions we can undertake in the coming weeks and months that will have an immediate and positive impact toward becoming a more diverse, equitable and inclusive Tulane.

 

Alongside existing university initiatives included in A Plan for Now, A Strategy for Tomorrow will be a long-range plan to advance EDI and anti-racism from 2022-2027.

"All of our initiatives have the single, urgent goal of building and sustaining an anti-racist environment and a community where all are welcomed, supported and valued – these efforts are essential for creating a world-class institution that conducts the best research, offers the best education and has the greatest positive impact on the world."

 

– Michael A. Fitts, President, Tulane University

"Our EDI Office was created to coordinate and enhance the crucial multi-faceted work taking place around the entire campus to identify and address inequities and to combat racism. This work is essential to our commitment to excellence and must be embedded into all aspects of our mission."

 

– Robin Forman, Ph.D., Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost

"We must move beyond acknowledging that every member of our community has value to addressing the barriers and how our past has limited the contributions of our most marginalized groups on campus. We must revise who we are, what we do, and what we value in an actionable and intentional strategy to truly become the anti-racist institution we aspire to be."

 

– Carolyn Barber-Pierre, Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs & Intercultural Life
