Strategy for Tomorrow

The Tulane Strategy for Tomorrow is a 5-year university-wide strategic plan that will guide our equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) initiatives and track the progress of our efforts from July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2027.

Over the past several years we have made great progress together, and we know we must do more so our EDI work does not fall disproportionately on our BIPOC and other community members who are underrepresented and underserved. Tulane is committed to the advancement of all of our community members; and, when we advance our EDI efforts, we strengthen the campus climate for all. Alongside existing university initiatives that advance our mission to recruit and support a community that is diverse across many dimensions, the Strategy for Tomorrow sets us on a new course that engages our full Tulane community of students, staff, faculty, administrators, alumni, and community partners in living our values of EDI and racial equity with one another every day. The three strategic priorities are:

Strategic Priority 1: Build equitable relationships amongst Tulane, local, regional, and global communities
Strategic Priority 2: Promote EDI excellence in research, teaching, and service
Strategic Priority 3: Build a campus climate where all can succeed

Key Definitions

We commit to Academic Excellence: Demonstrated ability to perform, achieve and/or excel in scholastic activities. To achieve academic excellence, it is essential to create a campus that is equitable, inclusive and diverse.

We commit to Equity: Working towards fair and just outcomes for people or groups by treating them in ways that address their differences and needs based on unique identities, barriers or advantages.

We commit to Diversity: Active encouragement of creating space for people of various cultures, backgrounds, experiences and identities.

We commit to Inclusion: Authentically bringing traditionally excluded individuals or groups into decision/policy making, processes, procedures and activities in a way that shares power.


We publish reports on our EDI Strategy for Tomorrow progress. These reports provide both transparency and accountability. TuSA also submits these status reports to Tulane University's Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, as part of the university-wide Strategy for Tomorrow.
