Office of the President

Scott S. Cowen is one of the country's most recognized and honored leaders in higher education. His vision is for Tulane to be the most distinctive global research university - an institution esteemed for its academic excellence and unparalleled ability to empower people and communities to make a difference in the world.

Whether transforming Tulane into one of the nation's most innovative and distinctive universities; testifying before Congress on educational reform or chairing the prestigious Association of American Universities, positive change and empowering leadership are his top priorities.

Perhaps it's the reason TIME magazine named him one of the nation's Top Ten College Presidents and why, under his leadership, Newsweek has twice named Tulane one of the "Hottest Schools in America." Affable, engaging and accessible, Scott, as he likes to be called, is a favorite of Tulane students and a beloved ambassador for his university and the city of New Orleans.
