Holly Flora

Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs
Professor, Newcomb Art Department
100C Newcomb Hall


As Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs, I help the School of Liberal Arts hire outstanding faculty and see that they thrive at Tulane and the wider world of academia. I work with our departments and programs in their hiring plans, meet with job candidates, and assist newly-hired and existing faculty navigating our process for tenure and promotion. I also encourage our faculty’s professional development and well-being through promotion and tenure seminars, work-life balance workshops, individual mentoring, and community-building events.

Please make an appointment with me or one of our SLA staff if you want to talk about any of the following:

  • New or existing faculty hires
  • Mentoring and professional development for faculty
  • Promotion and Tenure standards, policies, and procedures
  • Sabbaticals, research leaves, parental leaves or other leaves for faculty
  • Issues involving faculty performance or conduct
  • Applications for Visiting Scholars
  • Faculty Parents Network (informal group for faculty with families)
  • Faculty Transition Network (faculty members who help newly-arrived faculty or those in life transitions with practical matters such as housing, schools, etc.)

My office is in 100C Newcomb Hall, and you can reach me at or 504-314-2211.
