They will seek quality in our teaching and research and in the services that support our academic enterprise. Their programs will be those that meet our own high standards, that augment each other, and that are worthy of the respect of our students and of scholars, educators, and the larger community. At Tufts they seek to lead the way in defining what it means to be a university whose education and research have a global reach. Their students and faculty are engaged in international research and scholarship on issues ranging from AIDS to arsenic. They are grappling with the fundamental human forces that fuel conflict and cooperation in international affairs. And they are doing so through experiential global learning, distinctive interdisciplinary programs that apply academic knowledge to real-life situations around the world. Tufts University's emphasis on international education and research reaches across the curriculum, and infuses every school.
As Newcomb College has always done, we create a woman-centered experience in a co-educational institution. Whether you are a current student at Tulane University, alumna, or member of our New Orleans women’s community, we strive to be a center for mentoring the next generation of women leaders through innovative teaching on gender issues, service learning courses, and engaging public programs. Our research center, archives, and library are resources for all. Located in three separate buildings, 43 Newcomb Place, the Caroline Richardson Building, and 1326 Audubon Street, the Newcomb College Institute is a pivotal link between women students, faculty members, and community activists.
