Do you know a great 2021 grad from any of Tulane’s schools or at any degree level?

The Tulane University Class of 2021 has many individuals who have had extraordinary experiences, especially during the pandemic, or who will embark on exciting post-college chapters. We are seeking nominations of graduates with inspirational stories to be featured in Tulane Today in the days leading up to the virtual University Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, May 22.

To nominate a graduate for a Commencement profile, email Tulane Today at today@tulane.edu with the graduate’s name, major and contact information, and a few sentences describing why they should be profiled. Please use the words “Commencement profile” in the subject line. You will receive a response after the name has been submitted.

Selected students will be contacted for an interview and portrait and may have their stories published in Tulane Today.

The nomination period is open through noon on Tuesday, April 20. Here are a few sample student profiles:
