Communication with Parents

A student and her mom hug goodbye.

Our "Parents as Partners" e-newsletter begins with a special summer series for parents of incoming first year students sent on the 1st and 15th of the month from mid-May until August Move-In. Each newsletter will have a short features introducing campus resources, quick reminders of upcoming deadlines and planning advice. A convenient list of hyperlinks to key campus departments will be a constant element of each newsletter. 

Parents of all class years will receive e-newsletters during the academic year on the first of the month September through May. You can review past issues in our E-Newsletter Archive.

E-newsletters for the parents of the class of 2022 will begin in mid-May 2018. All parents for the incoming new class of 2022 Tulane students will be automatically added to our mailing list in May 2018 using addresses students supplied in their original admission application. If, after May 15, you haven't received the e-newsletters, you may add your email address on the subscription sign up form which will be updated at that time to include the Class of 2022. 

If you are currently receiving "Parents as Partners" and need to update your email address, please use the "Update Profile" link at the bottom of a previous issue to manage your subscription.

You can read past issues and find the subscribe link on the president's website. Please note that parents are not automatically dropped from this list when their students graduate. 
 

Emergency and other critical notifications
Every semester we create a list of parents of currently enrolled students and use it to send important messages to Tulane parents. This may include information about emergency situations such as bad weather and related school closings, annual notices for all parents or special messages from the president to the Tulane community. Please note that this list is NOT used for notices about crime on campus; see the TUPD Crime Alerts list below.  

The list is populated with contact information that students have provided in the Gibson Online portal. If you wish to sign up mid-semester, you can use this form, but you should also have your student add your email address in Gibson.
 

TUPD Crime Alerts
The Tulane University Police Department uses this list to send alerts in accordance with the Clery Act about crimes near the Tulane campus. Please note that this list is NOT used for emergency situations that threaten the Tulane campus. View past alerts and subscribe on the TUPD website. Please note that parents are not automatically dropped from this list when their students graduate.
