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 non-academic 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, antisemitism, Islamoprejudice, 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.
Our Areas of Focus
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.
