Good Morning:

In this space and in many other forums I have often expressed my gratitude to the staff of Tulane University. Over the last year they have made our survival, recovery and renewal possible.

Now I have the opportunity to express this gratitude in a more concrete way. But I need your help. Please visit the link below and nominate an outstanding staff member whose commitment has advanced the mission of Tulane through increased productivity, cost savings, humanitarianism or enhanced objectives.

Up to 10 staff members, selected from your nominations by a committee representing a cross section of the University community, will receive a cash prize of $1000 and a special plaque commemorating their dedication and excellence. In addition, Marjorie and I will have the honor of hosting a dinner for the Staff Excellence Award recipients at our home.

Please visit for more information and submit your nomination today. I know you will have plenty of qualified nominees from which to choose. I look forward to awarding the winners.

Have a great weekend,


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