Tulane’s Institute for Water Resources Law & Policy has hosted two postgraduate fellows annually to conduct research on the most pressing environmental legal issues affecting waterways. The program, which has led young scholars to landing key roles in the field, will continue for the next five years thanks to a grant from the William B. Wiener Jr. Foundation, in collaboration with the Rockefeller Family Fund. Haley Gentry (left) and Ximena De Obaldia (right) are this year’s fellows, and Christopher Dalbom (center), institute director, is a former fellow.

When it comes to leading workshops, helping students locate books and assisting with research, the people who work at Tulane Libraries are among the university’s most invaluable employees. Many of them are artists, too, and beginning Thursday, Sept. 14, their work will be on display at the Howard-Tilton Memorial Library. Titled “The Artists Among Us,” the exhibit runs through December 2023 and features paintings, photography, fiber art, poetry, ceramics and more. An opening reception will take place on Thursday from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on the library’s sixth floor. Light snacks will be served. To read more, visit the library’s event page.
