I am still reading over the material and will receive a briefing this afternoon. Honors will continue and be central to the new Undergraduate College. Read carefully and know that we will continue to support you at Tulane!
I will offer a few key points for the time being:The short of all of this is that nothing will change for next semester. You will continue to be advised through Newcomb and/or Tulane College (or through Engineering or Architecture). For the majority of you there will be little impact at all. Since you are already students your graduation requirements will not change. UPDATE: I have been rightly corrected. By "little impact" I refer to the academic aspect of your Tulane career. The loss of Newcomb and Tulane Colleges will have an impact on our lives and we will have to all work together to make it a positive change.Those of you who are in Engineering programs that have been eliminated note the following paragraph:
Students in affected programs will have the opportunity to continue their studies at Tulane if they can finish degree requirements by May 2007. Otherwise, they can be reassigned to another program or they will be offered assistance in transferring to another institution.Finally, the Honors Program will continue to exist and will be fully integrated into all undergraduate schools.
