Tulane: $10M In Anonymous Gifts To Recruit Faculty
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tulane University in New Orleans says it has received two anonymous gifts of $5 million each to recruit faculty members.
The university says in a Tuesday news release that the gifts will establish two presidential chairs. Each will be filled by professors known for teaching and research that combine different fields of knowledge.
The professors will serve university-wide, with joint appointments between schools.
The university says that Tulane President Mike Fitts hopes to eventually establish as many as 10 such professorships.
