Embracing Our Dual Identify as a Tier-1 Research University with a Liberal Arts College Approach

Research is the cornerstone of knowledge production, and it provides a path for applying academic insights to better understand and engage with the world around us. As an R1 university, Tulane’s School of Liberal Arts faculty and students are engaged in research projects that focus on a range of topics at the local, national, and global level.

The next advances of the world “will come from people who are able to link beauty to engineering, humanity to technology and poetry to processors."

– Walter Isaacson, School of Liberal Arts Professor and best-selling author
