“The Power of Tulane,” the university’s year in review, revisits the past academic year of 2016-17, and celebrates the people, places and programs that are Tulane University.


Tulane University President Mike Fitts is a forward-looking leader. But he recently took a look back with The Academic Year in Review, a compilation of Tulane’s greatest achievements during the 2016-17 academic year. Dubbed “The Power of Tulane,” the highly readable and beautifully photographed piece (which was also mailed to some 50,000 Tulane supporters) celebrates the people, places and programs responsible for Tulane’s growing reputation as a national powerhouse of research, teaching and discovery.

The Academic Year in review features faculty and student research that combines fields as diverse as music and neuroscience, virtual reality and addiction, mathematics and epidemiology – all of which make Tulane truly stand apart.

The review shows that the power of Tulane is a vast network of students, faculty, staff and alumni dedicated to improving the human condition in lasting and meaningful ways.

Highlights of The Academic Year in Review include:

  • $160 million in research grants, up from $122 million the previous year
  • A 22 percent increase in student applications
  • Designation as a top producer of Fulbright winners
