JUNE 2012: LETTER FROM PRESIDENT SCOTT COWEN
We must cultivate an environment of diversity, openness and inclusiveness to attract excellent people to Tulane and to prepare our students for life in our increasingly multicultural society. Today, many members of our own community - students as well as many of our faculty and staff - perceive Tulane as exclusionary and elitist. We must change this.
We must be accessible to all students who meet our academic standards and we must be attractive to all faculty and staff who meet our standards of excellence. We must accept and embrace the fact that our environment has become increasingly diverse, pluralistic and globalized.
We, too, must be diverse in the broadest sense of the word - culturally, geographically, and ethnically. We must create an open and tolerant environment in which people are free to live, learn, and exercise their freedom of expression.
