Contact the Tulane Board

The March 15th-17th vote on the Tulane’s Bold University Renewal Plan (BURP) is coming up fast. If you are interested in contacting the Board about your thoughts on the plan to eliminate the School of Engineering please feel free to use their contact information here.

If you think New Orleans might need a few engineers now, please drop them a line.

    I’m torn on this issue. While I hate the idea of this happening, I’m certainly not qualified to suggest what’s best for the university. I’m sure it’s frustrating for existing students — especially those about to graduate — but is it appropriate to recruit new engineering students for a program that will be struggling to survive?

    If this was a struggle for survival of the University I would be more torn but I think that the plan is driven more by rankings in USNews & World Report than by the fallout from Katrina because at least one of the cut majors was making the Univserity money.
