Welcome to the Tulane University Women’s Association, or as we like to say, TUWA! 

TUWA was founded in 1910 by spouses of the faculty and staff to connect members across generations by common interests, social events and service to Tulane University, Newcomb-Tulane and the City of New Orleans. The members, past and present range from Tulane University and Newcomb faculty, staff, alumni, volunteers and their spouses, and Lusher Charter School parents.

For over a century, the members of TUWA have been dedicated to promoting an atmosphere of growth and development in the Tulane and New Orleans community by offering it’s members opportunities to growth their personal strengths, ambitions and networks. We provide forum for lectures, book clubs, artistic pursuits, exhibits, tours, activity groups, informative classes and conferences, and social events.

Signature events include: the Jane and Herbert Longenecker Lecture, Fall Coffee hosted at the President’s House, annual Holiday party, and Tulane Women’s Athletic events to name a few.
