School of Liberal Arts

Big Footprint. Big Possibility. Big Impact.

The School of Liberal Arts is the largest at Tulane University, encompassing the social sciences, humanities and fine and performing arts through 16 departments and 19 interdisciplinary programs, as well as the Carroll Gallery, Shakespeare Festival, Summer Lyric Theatre, and the Middle American Research Institute.

Helmed by Dean Brian Edwards, our leadership team is focused on the future of our school, and the future of the liberal arts. We’re excited to engage our incredible students, faculty, staff, alumni, and donors to join us in fundraising efforts this year and make #GiveGreen2022 our biggest year yet!


John Strasburger (A&S ’86) is challenging all donors to make a gift to the School of Liberal Arts today. When 150 donors give to the School of Liberal Arts, it will unlock $10,000 to support the school, and when 250 donors give, it will unlock an additional $10,000 for a total of $20,000!


The School of Liberal Arts Dean’s Advisory Council member Barry Miller (A&S ’91) is also challenging alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends to make their first gift to Liberal Arts on Give Green. When 50 first-time donors make a gift to the school, it will unlock a $7,500 gift from Barry. Gifts of any size will count in this challenge!


To maximize your impact, the first $1,000 in gifts made to the School of Liberal Arts after 12 p.m. will be matched by a generous contribution from Bob Wolfberg (A&S ’92). Double your gift by taking advantage of this challenge match!


Dean Brian Edwards wants to celebrate the creativity and sense of fun of Liberal Arts students. All current Tulanians who contribute the cost of cappuccino ($5 or more) will be entered into one of two drawings: breakfast with the dean at Satsuma or tacos with the dean at Val’s (4 spots per table). Green food is on the menu at both establishments! To enter, take a screenshot of your donation and email to:

Visit our Give Green table in front of Newcomb Hall from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Give Green!

#GiveGreenTU and support the School of Liberal Arts today!

We cannot wait to Give Green together in 2022, and we thank you for your continued support of the School of Liberal Arts at Tulane!

How are donations used?

Funds from Give Green afford us the ability to conduct national recruitment searches, bring top faculty talent to our halls, and further advance our curriculum. The success of the last two years of Give Green directly benefitted the growth of important programs such as Africana Studies and Digital Media Practices, and helped us rebrand our increasingly popular Strategy, Leadership and Analytics Minor (SLAM).

Looking ahead, we will continue to dedicate raised resources to fund a range of priorities, including:

  • Student initiatives
  • New hires in emerging programs such as Middle Eastern and North African Studies
  • Our Creative Industries Certificate, available through our Summer Programs and of critical value to an upward business sector in New Orleans — and across the globe
  • Environmental Studies, as we work together towards urgent solutions for a sustainable future

Why are donations necessary?

Gifts received will help us to continue our ongoing efforts to:

  • Foster a global liberal arts through cultural connectedness and language learning
  • Embrace our dual identity as a Research 1 university with a liberal arts college approach
  • Celebrate our iconic location within New Orleans and the Gulf South
  • Provide curriculum that guarantees our graduates the skills needed to excel in the careers of the future
