There are many ways to show your support for Tulane Engineering. Here are some of the things that everyone can do:
1) Sign our Online Petition. This is a way for us
to quantify support. You can sign your name here.
We have gathered over 2700 signatures in just over 1 week. We look
forward to seeing your name.
2) Contact President Cowen. You can contact him
via e-mail or telephone: firstname.lastname@example.org, 504-865-5201.
Tell him about your experiences at Tulane and with Tulane Alumni.
Also, tell him why engineering is vital to the future of New
3) Post Fliers. You can print off these fliers and
posters here. We would like them put up around New Orleans,
specifically the Uptown area. Also, if area businesses agree to put
them up, that would be greatly appreciated. The more people who
know about our cause, the larger the support base in the community,
and the easier it will be to convince Tulane to reconsider.
4) Chalk. This is something that all of us can do.
Plus, the cost is very low. Chalking the campus will help get our
message across to the Tulane Community. Make sure you only write on
horizontal surfaces. We could get in trouble if we write on
vertical surfaces as it does not wash off in a rain storm.
5) Contact Alumni. If you know any alumni of
Tulane University, or better yet, the College of Engineering. We
ask that you contact them and inform them of this disastrous
decision. We feel that this decision undermines the rebuilding
effort in New Orleans. If you are an alumnus of Tulane University,
we have setup a way for you to add your name to our mailing list
for easier contact. Simply add your information. Your information is secure and cannot
be accessed by outside parties. Don't worry, we will not sell your
information to any third parties. We're not in this to make
6) Talk to Your Congressperson. Contacting your
Senators and Representatives will encourage our elected officials
to respond to our cause. Eliminating engineering in New Orleans is
not something that is in the best interest of our city. They need
to understand that. You can contact your Senators and your Representatives. You are encouraged to call or visit
their offices in person as well. Here is a copy of the letter that Will sent to his representatives.
7) Pledge Your Support. We are accepting pledges
on our forums. The pledges are made on the condition that
the College of Engineering is reinstated. At the moment, we are not
accepting actual donations. But, a Non-Profit Organization is being
formed to accept those donations should it become necessary.
