Shifting the Paradigm:

Week of September 19-26, Uptown Campus

All week, the Tulane University Sexual Violence Prevention and Education Coalition is hosting a series of events around the Uptown campus focused on sexual violence and prevention. Starting September 19th, Tulane's Students, Leaders and Faculty will be putting on educational workshops, forums, and even a Drag Queen Bingo night in effort to raise awareness for sexual violence and prevention on campus.

Experiential Learning and Internship Panel:

Friday, September 16, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m., Anna Many Lounge in the Caroline Richardson Building

Hear from fellow students how they navigated applying for internships and grants, and how these experiences have helped them form post-college plans.  NCI staff will also be in attendance to answer questions about NCI grant funding.  This event is presented as part of Fridays at Newcomb, sponsored by the Newcomb College Institute.  For more information, email Lauren Wethers at
