Part of the initiative is a cohort-based fellowship program supporting early career faculty seeking to engage in academia, while contributing to the pursuit of equity and inclusion in the built environment.

Each fellow will participate in a one- or two-year cohort and is paired with mentors.

The nine schools will choose fellows with attention to BIPOC and other underrepresented faculty.

Tulane School of Architectureā€™s fellows for the 2021-2023 cohort are Architecture and Urbanism Fellow Omar Ali and Architecture and Social Innovation Fellow Emmanuel Osorno.
