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.

Ann Masson, an adjunct lecturer in the Tulane School of Architecture Master of Preservation Studies program, was honored by the Louisiana Landmarks Society in May with the 2018 Harnett T. Kane Award. The award recognizes individuals for distinguished, lifelong contributions to preservation.

“A respected and renowned preservationist, historian, teacher, author and museum consultant, Ann Masson has made the protection of the French Quarter’s residential qualities her personal and professional mission,” noted the Louisiana Landmarks Society in an announcement of the award.

Masson is Tulane University alumna and former assistant director of the Preservation Studies program. She recently established the Ann and Frank Masson Graduate Research Travel Endowed Fund to support independent student research and travel opportunities.
