No city in North America can compete with New Orleans when it comes to culture, food, historic architecture, joie de vivre, and tourism options.
The Crescent City has suffered plagues, wars, imperial regime changes, and devastating floods. Yet, it always wakes up with a smile on its face. This may be because its inhabitants step to an easy beat first laid down three centuries ago. Moving at this relaxed pace, visitors are delighted by the French Creole elegance of the Vieux Carre (French Quarter) or the opulence discovered in a streetcar ride through the Garden District and Uptown.
Any time of year find live music, amazing Creole and Cajun cuisine, fresh seafood, farmers markets, shopping, nightlife, and more. During Mardi Gras season, the city becomes the world’s center. Downtown transforms into an adult playground, while parades in residential areas provide children thrilling entertainment. Each spring, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival moves the focus to the charming Gentilly area and the Fair Grounds Race Course. But no matter the time of year, New Orleans’ calendar overflows in celebration.
Tulane has retained the services of Kaye/Bassman International’s Academic Medicine Practice to assist in this leadership search. Tulane is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
