Tulane News & Press

  1. The former Tulane medical student, shot while trying to stop a kidnapping, has already raised $60,000 for his new foundation. Tulane University took out an ad in Sunday's edition of Times-Picayune to promote Gold's "Strong City" foundation.
  2. For some college students across the nation, Charlottesville appeared to be an isolated incident. Others, though, recall politically charged events that have been occurring on college campuses for many years. With the DKE incident three decades ago, Tulane is no exception.
  3. A Tulane medical student who was nearly killed by a man off Magazine Street two years ago returned to New Orleans Thursday to make good on a commitment. Peter Gold, who is now a doctor, came back to help young people through a program designed to help lead them into productive lives.
  4. Nghana Lewis teaches at Tulane University in New Orleans and has followed the battle over the city’s Confederate monuments. Lewis said while “there is much to admire about our country,” U.S. history is complex. She said America is still a “very young nation and still early in the process of undoing its history of slavery and racial discrimination."
  5. David Smilde, a sociology professor at Tulane University who has written about Venezuelan politics, said the constitutional assembly could convene in coming days. Its first orders of business are expected to include dissolving the National Assembly and removing current attorney general and Maduro critic Luisa Ortega Diaz. “On the opposition side, I assume there will be protests and efforts to block off roads,” Smilde said. “They really don’t have much left in their tool kit.”
