Located in New Orleans, Tulane University is a tier-one research university in the United States, a member of the selected group of top research universities integrated in the AAU. The School is an innovator in the field of the built environment at multiple scales, from buildings to neighborhoods and from urban landscapes to regional planning. The City of New Orleans and the Mississippi Delta are our natural domains of research. The city is home to a diverse community steeped in a long history of action and exchange. Our 15th President, Mike Fitts, has strong commitments to anti-racism that the Tulane School of Architecture has taken up in multiple ways.

We are known for our robust community outreach, design-build, and multi-disciplinary research initiatives. We collaborate with other schools at Tulane such as Science and Engineering, Liberal Arts, Law, and Public Health, with university research centers as the ByWater Institute or the Taylor Center, and undertake design research that involves climate change, coastal and riparian crisis, historic preservation, sustainable real estate development, and the challenges for social and environmental justice. The complex nature of this region provides ample opportunities for comparative global studies. For this reason, we expect Tulane’s contributions to be of urgent relevance.
