Dear Tulane Community,

As we deal with the tragic events of last week and their aftermath, we are trying to restore normalcy to the university. I cannot claim that it is business as usual, for it is not, nor should it be. Every day we are dealing with the issues facing all of us as individuals and as a community. Through your feedback and help we are continually monitoring the well-being of the community and deciding what actions to take as a result of last week and events that may be ahead of us.

Please do not hesitate to contact any of the university's administrative and academic officers and deans if you know someone who needs assistance or if you have ideas regarding other things we should be doing or considering on a daily basis.

I also ask you to continue to use your sound judgment in the scheduling of non-academic events, including social ones, to ensure that they are appropriate in appearance as well as substance for the times we are now facing.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let me know.


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