Tulane faculty continue to teach and do research of extraordinarily high quality and impact.

The faculty at Tulane University number over one thousand strong. We say "strong" because our faculty has helped lead Tulane to national accolades: one of Newsweek's nine "hot schools" as well as ranking within the top 50 national universities according to U.S. News and World Report.

But we also mean "strong" because that same faculty has ridden out one of the toughest times in U.S. history for a university and a community–Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. This extraordinary group continued to educate, communicate and quite often house and feed Tulane students during the unprecedented evacuation of New Orleans in August 2005.

And they are still working every day to continue a tradition of excellence at Tulane.
