Cowen Institute Student Advisory Council

The Cowen Institute for Public Education Initiatives established the Student Advisory Council (SAC) in fall 2009 to provide a medium for communication between the Institute and Tulane’s undergraduate and graduate student bodies about how to engage student constituents in our programming efforts and to promote the Institute’s programming initiatives among student populations.

Membership on the council will typically be comprised of student representatives from CACTUS, the Roosevelt Institute, Greek Community, Community Service Work‐Study Tutoring Program, Graduate and Professional Student Association, Teacher Preparation and Certification as well as other Tulane students who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and interest in working to support the reform and transformation of K‐12 public education in New Orleans.
