The Newcomb Institute provides academic and co-curricular programs designed to enhance women’s leadership and gender equity.
Beginning in spring 2020, the Newcomb Institute will be redefining what it means to be a Newcomb Fellow. A brief description of the new structure is below, but we invite you to attend one of the following information sessions about the new Fellows program, where you can meet with Sally Kenney, hear about the revised mission of the Institute, and get a full briefing on the new structure of the Fellows program and opportunities for faculty engagement with Newcomb.
Please RSVP for one of these information sessions to Laura Wolford (email@example.com)
At the information session, we will provide information about Newcomb Fellows Committees, including an elected Executive Committee.
We look forward to meeting with you and engaging Tulane faculty in a vibrant community dedicated to advancing gender equity.
The Newcomb Fellows is a voluntary association of faculty from all undergraduate colleges of Tulane University. A Newcomb Fellow supports women’s leadership/gender equity and participates in activities of Newcomb Institute that foster faculty-student interaction and research. The Newcomb Fellows program was established by a resolution of the Tulane Board of Administrators in November of 1987. Newcomb Institute administers the Newcomb Fellows program.
A Newcomb Fellow will continue to be a faculty member (full-time, visiting, administrative, post-doc or professor of practice) who supports undergraduates in achieving gender equity at Tulane University. However, we are creating two categories of Fellows:
Core Newcomb Fellows engage in research and/or teaching in one of the following areas:
Affiliate Newcomb Fellows are faculty members or administrators with a demonstrated interest in gender equity and/or a strong connection to and affiliation with the historic Newcomb College and the Newcomb Institute.
We are asking each prospective fellow to complete a brief online form in which they self-identify which category of Fellow best fits their interests and to identify how they are able to contribute to the mission of the Newcomb Institute.
Fellows would be expected to identify which of the following activities we might expect them to do:
