An extraordinary number of new things are happening at Tulane University. The Academic Year in Review provides a snapshot of the power of that newness — the Power of Tulane — over the last academic year and beyond.


In the Academic Year in Review, Tulane University President Michael A. Fitts presents the university’s most extraordinary achievements of the 2018–19 academic year. The theme, “The Power of Tulane,” serves to highlight the people and programs that take on global challenges while also serving the local community.

The academic year’s accomplishments include:

  • Microbiologist Lisa Morici and immunologist James McLachlan’s $8.5 million NIH-funded effort to develop a more effective vaccine for whooping cough.
  • Anthropology professor John Verano’s acclaimed research of the mass sacrifice site, Huanchaquito-Las Llamas, in northern Peru.
  • Liberal Arts student Avery Siegel’s Oscar-winning documentary short, Period. End of Sentence.
  • Another record-breaking fundraising year that raised $150 million and contributed to the tremendous growth on campus and across university leadership.
