All classes are suspended for the week of March 16. Starting the week of March 23, all classes will resume entirely online. Tulane School of Architecture (TuSA) remains open with most faculty and staff working remotely. Students can be granted access to work in the building only with prior approval from the school. At this time, we are not hosting admissions tours.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the TuSA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Emergency Management page for updates.

Tulane is working with students who have difficult personal circumstances that would make leaving campus a challenge or will face complications in online learning once they return home. In response, we have set up the Tulane Student Emergency Aid and Assistance Fund to address current student needs.

MPS in Cuba

April 10, 2017

After another amazing trip to Cuba, Master of Preservation Studies students and faculty leaders are readjusting and remembering the sites, discoveries, and conversations of last week. Below is a brief synopsis and photos of their extraordinary trip. 

"The Tulane Master of Preservation Studies course in International Practice visited Cienfuegos, Trinidad and Havana in late March 2017 to learn about the operation of Cuba's UNESCO World Heritage Cities. Led in partnership with Tulane's Cuban Studies department and members of ICOMOS Cuba, the 9-day study trip entailed site visits, lectures, interviews and field research. Topics addressed aspects of architectural heritage conservation including tourism management, infrastructure needs, site interpretation and community involvement.  Two round tables with our hosts allowed a sharing of ideas and suggestions that could be applied in both Cuba and the United States."
