Good Morning:

Festive and historic Commencement 2008 is over and we have now come to the end of another academic year. With applications and student quality at an all-time high, with research awards and fundraising dollars on par with pre-Katrina levels and with students engaged in New Orleans like never before, this is a wonderful time to be part of the Tulane story.

I want to thank all of you, our wonderful faculty and staff, who continually work so hard to help us achieve all of our goals. I hope you know how much you are appreciated.

This will be my last regular Tulane Talk until the fall semester when we begin what I hope is another promising year. But I do plan to write to you occasionally over the summer as events warrant. I hope you get some time to relax a bit this summer and that you have a wonderful Memorial Day break.

Have a great summer,


Office of the President Emeritus, 1555 Poydras St, Suite 700, New Orleans, LA 70112 504-274-3638
