Tulane University


New Orleans in 1834 was one of the busiest international port cities in the world. But the city wasn’t just importing goods from across the world, they were also importing deadly diseases like yellow fever, malaria and smallpox. In an effort to treat these diseases, learn more about them and train more doctors, the Medical College of Louisiana was formed.


Tulane's purpose is to create, communicate and conserve knowledge in order to enrich the capacity of individuals, organizations and communities to think, to learn and to act and lead with integrity and wisdom.


Attracting the most innovative thinkers to Tulane—world-class faculty and graduate and undergraduate students—and combining our intellectual muscle with an entrepreneurial mindset will position the university to help solve some of society’s most complex challenges. Research here isn’t just the province of graduate students or faculty: Undergraduate research is an important part of the Tulane experience, and grants are available to help students cover the cost of research materials, travel and other expenses.


Tulane’s network of career services partners with local, national, and global employers from a wide range of industries to recruit top talent across the institution.
