New President for Tulane University


Michael Fitts

Also in July as the school welcomes Dean Buekens back to the Dean’s Office, the entire university will welcome new Tulane President Michael Fitts. Fitts comes to Tulane from the University of Pennsylvania where he has served as dean of the law school since 2000. He was selected following an exhaustive national search after current President Scott Cowen announced his retirement effective June 30 following 16 years in the university’s top spot. Fitts will become the 15th president of the university.
