COVID-19 Response & Resources

Since our founding as a medical college in 1834, Tulane University has always met challenges head-on, from addressing the yellow fever epidemics of the 19th century to recovering from Hurricane Katrina. Today we are leading the fight against the COVID-19 global pandemic through research, innovation, scholarship and frontline health care. This site contains information about the important work being done and resources to update and aid our community and beyond.

A Message from President Fitts

May 29, 2020

President Mike Fitts released a special message today outlining the university-wide efforts to create a roadmap for returning to on-campus learning, living and working.

Planning for the fall 2020 semester is still in progress and will continue through the summer with feedback from the Tulane community. All return-to-campus plans are contingent on local, state and federal directives and could change based on these.
