For Faculty & Staff

Faculty and staff share a unique and vital responsibility in cultivating a safe and supportive environment for students.  You are inextricably connected to student empowerment and development, not only as scholars but as positive, contributing members of the Tulane community and beyond.  

As a mentor, role model, and educator, you can model the prosocial values and respect that we expect of all Tulanians through your work, research, and involvement on campus.

Coalition to Stop Sexual Violence


To create a strong network of campus partners who have a breadth of knowledge about sexual violence issues impacting the Tulane community. This network actively engages in and promotes community initiatives that prevent and respond to sexual violence.

Comprised of student, faculty, and staff from various disciplines, this coalition of Tulane campus leaders meets regularly throughout the year.

For questions about the coalition, contact Meredith Smith, Assistant Provost for Title IX & Clery Compliance.

Violence Prevention Research

Our world-class violence researchers here at Tulane have worked to find the causes of violence and its devastating impact. With the creation of the Violence Prevention Institute (VPI), Tulane brings together the top minds in our community to focus on how we can solve this enormously complicated and cross-cutting problem. The VPI will focus its research on violence in our city and across the world.  It will also help us solve the problem of violence in our own community at Tulane by addressing the prevalence of sexual assault and domestic violence revealed by our 2017 campus climate survey.   We will only find the answers when we work together across disciplines, engage with community partners and collectively make this a clear priority.
