Message from the Dean

Nicholas J. Altiero, Dean

Nicholas J. Altiero, DeanAfter a brief stint as Interim Provost, I’m excited to have returned to my role as Dean in time to begin another year of academic success for the Tulane University School of Science and Engineering. It’s been an active summer, and we have been looking forward to welcoming many new faces to campus. The class of 2020 is the largest in Tulane’s history—1,850 new freshman, over 600 of whom have identified a primary major in the School of Science and Engineering. And the SSE graduate student enrollment is projected to grow by nearly 10% bringing our total number of students this academic year to over 1900 SSE undergraduates and nearly 500 SSE graduate students. I’m eager to see the impact these future scientists and engineers will have locally, nationally, and globally in the years ahead.

How do they feel the experiences have helped them scientifically and professionally? What barriers and opportunities developed later in their careers? Those were some of the questions that Brian S. Mitchell, a professor in the School of Science and Engineering at Tulane University…
