YOUR STAY ON CAMPUS TONIGHT ■
For your safety, Tulane employs a security card access system which allows only authorized cardholders to enter Tulane buildings. Make sure you always have your access card on you, especially if you leave the building, or you won’t be able to get back in!
Always lock your room when you leave to secure both your own and your roommate’s belongings. Remember to take your key with you when you leave to make sure you don’t accidentally get locked out.
If your access card or key is lost or broken, you can call the 24-hour Conference Services Desk, located in Butler Residence Hall, at (504) 862-3949 for assistance.
There is a fee of $30 for every card and $100 for every key that is not returned at the end of your stay, so make sure you keep track of your card and key. If you ﬁnd a lost key or card after you have left campus, email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if you can be reimbursed.
Tulane does not schedule ﬁre drills during the summer, so if an alarm sounds, assume there is a ﬁre, and calmly proceed to the nearest exit. Those staying in Butler should stay along McAlister Drive in front of the building, and guests in Willow should go to the large ﬁeld across McAlister Drive.
If the air conditioning in your room is not working properly, please contact the Conference Services Desk at the number listed above.
Quiet hours are from 12 midnight to 7 a.m. Be considerate to your roommate and ﬂoormates and keep noise in the halls to a minimum during these hours. If you would like to stay up late and socialize, please head to the ﬁrst ﬂoor lounge for games and activities!

CENTER FOR ACADEMIC EQUITY Housed in Newcomb-Tulane College, the Center for Academic Equity serves all self-identiﬁed underrepresented or non-traditional students. These communities include, but are not exclusive to, students of color, LGBTQ, and ﬁrst generation college scholars’ cohorts. If you are a member of one of these communities, you bring to the Tulane University student body leadership, experiential wisdom, academic excellence, life skills, and important cultural and social perspectives. You drive Tulane University to fulﬁll its mission as an inclusive, multicultural, academically rich research institution. Without your leadership, unique perspectives, and cultural wisdom, Tulane University could easily reproduce homogeneity of thought as well as of knowledge. We all become better educators, better people, intellectually more rigorous, and more representative of a democratic republic as we increase the diversity of voices on campus. The mission of the Center for Academic Equity is to free you to follow your intellectual and creative aspirations.
FELLOWSHIPS AND GRANTS
Summer fellowships and grants are designed to defray some of the costs associated with student participation in unpaid internships, study abroad experiences and summer school attendance. Fellows and grant recipients can extend their learning during the summer months by participating in academic activities that would otherwise be cost-prohibitive.
Equity Thursdays offer weekly presentations by members of the Tulane University community and invited guests from Greater New Orleans. Faculty, Students, Staff, Alumni and Friends share information regarding topics of academic access.
The Center for Academic Equity supports student research efforts with funding for original and collaborative projects during the summer. Projects from the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences are welcome. The center hosts an undergraduate research colloquium in the fall semester.
CONFERENCE TRAVEL The Center for Academic Equity provides competitive travel awards for students attending or participating in conferences that bear on their academic experience at Tulane. These awards can be used to cover transportation, housing and conference fees.
NTC SUMMER EXPERIENCE The NTC Summer Experience invites students to spend ﬁve weeks on Tulane’s campus prior to start of their freshman semester. Students live in campus residence halls, take college-level courses, meet with faculty and staff advisors, and participate in workshops that introduce a wide range of opportunities including study abroad and the Honors Program.

Coaches frequently partner with students on the following topics: • College transition • Executive function concerns • Neurodiversity • Time-management/organization • Motivation • Test anxiety • Stress management • Decision-making
THE STORY OF FAILURE The Story of Failure Program represents cross-campus collaboration between students, faculty, and staff who desire to support students in normalizing failure and growing resilience. We have a shared belief that students in college are facing unique challenges that require a resilient nature to persevere both within the University and as a global citizen. Our mission is to support students in developing a mindset that allows them to grow from failure as they navigate the unavoidable challenges of a rigorous education and meaningful life. The Story of Failure Program offers events and activities throughout the year that give individuals within our campus community a space to share their unique stories of resilience.

Regularly scheduled SI sessions are facilitated by Peer Tutors who have previously taken the course and demonstrated academic success in that particular subject area. The Peer Tutor connects with the students who are taking that class for the ﬁrst time. They sit in on class lectures, take notes, and act as a support system to those currently taking the course. Additionally, the Peer Tutor creates and facilitates follow-up study sessions throughout the week based on the course syllabus, faculty recommendations, the students’ needs, and what’s been going on in class. Professors or SI leaders will announce SI opportunities during class.

CAPS FOR COUNSELING SERVICES CAPS is committed to providing a safe, inclusive, and afﬁrming community of care for Tulane students. The licensed counselors, social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists at CAPS seek to promote well-being within the Tulane community by providing conﬁdential mental health services. CAPS offers a range of options to students to help ensure that your time here is as safe, happy, and productive as possible. The CAPS staff is diverse and dedicated to supporting students in creating a meaningful college experience.
CAPS staff includes MD psychiatrists and a medical psychologist who can provide medication management to Tulane students if appropriate. After an initial meeting with the student, the psychiatrist or medical psychologist will facilitate treatment and follow up with the student through additional individual appointments or referrals to community providers.
URGENT SERVICES If a student feels the need to speak with someone urgently, they can walk in without an appointment and see the on-call clinician. Our staff will discuss the student’s concerns and determine whether additional resources may be needed to continue supporting the student.
OUTREACH SERVICES CAPS works to connect with the Tulane campus community and departments through outreach services. You can ﬁnd CAPS at events like Dear Body Week and Wellness Wednesday to get information about important mental well-being issues and services. CAPS can also collaborate with student groups, faculty, and staff in creating programs on speciﬁc mental health topics.
First visits to CAPS usually involve meeting with a clinician for an initial consultation. During the consultation session, students discuss their mental health concerns and determine which resources—whether it be from CAPS, on-campus, or the community—may be most helpful to them.
Brief Individual Therapy If individual therapy at CAPS is determined to be the best ﬁt for a student, regular meetings with an available clinician would then be scheduled. During their sessions, students and clinicians work together to help reach students’ goals, manage distress, and move toward improved self-understanding, mental well-being, and balance. If ongoing care is indicated after reaching the session limit, students will be offered appropriate referrals in the community.
CAPS is always happy to help support any Tulane student when things are tough. Sometimes, though, you might want to talk to someone right away. This is where The Line comes in. Any time, day or night, 24/7, a trained professional at The Line will answer a student’s phone call and give conﬁdential support when you need it.
Call The Line, 24/7, at (504) 264-6074.

While we recommend that Tulane students enroll in SHIP, we understand that some students will prefer to waive enrollment in favor of alternative coverage. To waive, you must demonstrate equivalent or better coverage using our online insurance veriﬁcation tool. Some out-of-state and international health insurance plans may lack coverage in the New Orleans area. SHIP ensures access to providers at The Health Center on campus as well as a wealth of providers in New Orleans, including the city’s major hospitals and a wide array of specialists. SHIP also covers students when they travel, so you’re covered at home and abroad.
State law requires all students entering college in Louisiana to provide documentation of the following immunizations: Measles, Mumps, Rubella Vaccine (MMR); Tetanus-Diphtheria Pertusis (Tdap); and the Meningococcal (Meningitis). Additionally, all Tulane students must complete appropriate Tuberculosis (TB) screening.
Immunization Compliance Deadline: July 15, 2017
Students will be notiﬁed by their Tulane email when Open Enrollment becomes available. During open enrollment, you must either enroll in the SHIP or submit proof of comparable coverage online at campushealth.tulane.edu.
Download an immunization compliance form at campushealth.tulane.edu. Have your health care provider complete and sign the form and obtain copies of lab reports if applicable. Follow instructions on the form to submit via the Patient Portal.
Health Insurance Compliance Deadline: Sept. 8, 2017
Students who do not enroll or complete the online waiver by the posted deadlines will be automatically enrolled in SHIP. The insurance premium will be billed through Accounts Receivable.
Tulane’s on-campus pharmacy ﬁlls prescriptions not only from Campus Health physicians and nurse practitioners, but also from outside providers, including both local and out-of-town practitioners. We will also help you transfer prescriptions from other drug stores to our location for your convenience. Students must present a Tulane Splash card to have prescriptions ﬁlled at the pharmacy and show state or federal ID for pickup.

STUDENT RESOURCES CASE MANAGEMENT & VICTIM SUPPORT SERVICES Many students experience difﬁcult times during college, due to either academic or personal reasons. Common stressors include medical, mental health, personal or family crisis, illness, or injury. These life events can interfere with a student’s ability to attain their goals.

Common concerns and issues supported through CMVSS include emotional distress/behavioral health concerns, death of a family member or close friend, serious illness or injury, hospitalization, academic concerns related to distress or crisis, and crime victimization. Examples of services offered include navigating campus and community resources, referrals to community providers, exploration of and referral for behavioral health concerns, coordination and follow-up during and after hospitalization and/or medical leave of absence, health and safety referrals, problem resolution, victim support services, help managing multiple or complex medical needs, crisis management, and conﬂict resolution.
