Good Morning:

I hope everyone had a wonderful three day weekend. This week starts with good news.

I am pleased to announce that Andy Heck, Assistant Vice President of University Human Resources at Indiana University, has accepted our offer to become Vice President of Human Resources, effective July 1.

Andy has extensive experience as a human resource professional in higher education and in business. Since 1995, he has served in a senior level human resource position at Indiana University. Prior to his Indiana appointment, he was Director of Human Resources at the University of Arizona from 1992-1995. Andy also has human resource experience with the Walt Disney Company, where he served in a number of human resource positions from 1979-1992.

Andy's experience and accomplishments are impressive. They align perfectly with the challenges we face at Tulane University as we continue to implement the "People" section of our strategic plan. Under Andy's leadership, we expect the Human Resource Department to even more effectively serve the needs of our faculty and staff.

I want to thank Yvette Jones, Senior Vice President for Planning and Administration, and her Search Committee for bringing this search to a successful conclusion.


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