NEW ORLEANS – Tulane University Director of Athletics Troy Dannen announced today a gift in excess of $1.5 million from the Estate of Alan H. Rosenbloum. $1 million will be used to establish the Alan H. Rosenbloum Mental Health Endowed Fund. The fund will expand Tulane Athletics’ mental health support of its 350 student-athletes.

“Alan Rosenbloum was a devoted fan of Tulane Athletics, but he also cared deeply for student-athletes and their health both on and off the field.” Tulane President Michael A. Fitts said. “This gift will help ensure that the support we give our student-athletes goes beyond cheering for them and continues to address their physical, social and mental well-being.”

“More than ever, a focus on the mental health of our student-athletes is critical to ensuring a healthy, safe and positive educational and athletic experience. Mental health support services within intercollegiate athletics deserve and demand continuous investment,” Dannen said. “Tulane Athletics is pleased to honor Mr. Rosenbloum’s generosity through the creation of this fund, and thrilled to know our student-athletes will be the beneficiaries.”
