Dana Day and David Edwards, who both earned their bachelor’s and law degrees from Tulane University, have joined the Board of Tulane, the University’s main governing body.
Day, who lives in Chicago, practiced law for several years before directing Midwest real estate sales for Mutual of New York (now MONY Life Insurance). She supports various philanthropic endeavors with her husband Stanley Day, who is also a Tulane graduate and member of the Tulane President’s Council.
"I am excited to join the Board of Tulane at a time when the university’s reputation continues to grow and interest in attending my alma mater is at an all-time high," Day said. "I hope to help parlay this into even greater success for Tulane."
Edwards, an attorney with Jones Walker, holds leadership positions in numerous organizations in New Orleans and within Tulane. He is the current chair of the Tulane President’s Council, a past chair of the Tulane Board of Governors and the new chair of the School of Medicine Board of Governors. He is also a member of the School Public Health and Tropical Medicine Dean’s Council, a member of the Board of Directors for A Studio in the Woods, a member of the Tulane Law Review Board of Advisory Editors and the Tulane Tax Institute Planning Committee. He has served as a member of Tulane University Health Sciences Campus (TUHSC) Development and Alumni Committee, the TUHSC Legislative Committee, and co-chair of the Bea Field Alumni House Project. He is also a charter member of the Tulane Estate Planning Institute Advisory Board and a member of the law school’s National Firm Initiative.
"Becoming a member of the Board of Tulane is a very satisfying continuation of my longtime commitment to a university I truly love," Edwards said.
Tulane President Scott Cowen said the two newest board members represent the university's effort to keep the board balanced with leadership from both a local and national perspective.
"We want to remain grounded as an anchor institution of New Orleans while attracting board members, students, staff and faculty from throughout the country who will make a national and global impact," Cowen said.
