In honor of President Scott Cowen’s commitment to civic engagement and upcoming retirement after 16 years of service to Tulane, the city of New Orleans, and the field of civic engagement, we would like to challenge the Tulane community to work together and get more involved in public service.

The Cowen Service Challenge aims to encourage alumni, faculty, staff and friends of Tulane to celebrate President Cowen’s legacy of supporting healthy and vibrant communities through direct community service. As a community, we would like to contribute 750,000 hours of service between August 1, 2013 and May 2, 2014. 

During the 2013-2014 school year, we would like not only to sustain the fantastic programs and activities that so many of us at Tulane are participating in, we would like to encourage our fellow Tulanians to do a little more.  If every student, faculty member, and staff member did one hour or service a week between now and May 1st, we can make our goal.  When alumni and friends of Tulane get involved,  we will be hard to beat!

Be in that number.
