    New program aims to produce global scholars
Altman International Studies ProgramThis fall, Tulane University launched a new interdisciplinary program aimed at preparing students to take on the unique challenges of an increasingly interconnected world. The Jeffrey A. Altman International Studies Program in Business and Liberal Arts is a four-year undergraduate program that combines advanced language training with business and liberal arts education. Made possible through an $8.3 million gift from the Jeffrey A. Altman Foundation, the philanthropic organization founded by Altman (BSM ’88), the program targets a select number of students who seek a more integrated understanding of the economic, political and social issues that define the contemporary world.


    Alums honor Trapani with professorship
Trapani professorshipFriends, colleagues and former students of John M. Trapani came together on Nov. 1 to honor the longtime A. B. Freeman School of Business faculty member with the establishment of an endowed professorship in his name. Spearheaded by Stacey M. Berger (A&S ’76, MBA ’78) and David A. Sislen (A&S ’76), two of Trapani’s former students, the John M. Trapani III Professorship in Business Administration will support the teaching and scholarship of an outstanding early-career faculty member.

    Freeman celebrates Homecoming 2012
homecoming 2012A big B-school crowd turned out this year to help the Freeman School celebrate Homecoming 2012. On Friday, Nov. 2, about two dozen alumni attended an open house and Q&A with Dean Ira Solomon in Goldring/Woldenberg Hall II. Dean Solomon gave a brief update on the school and then fielded questions from attendees on a variety of topics. On Nov. 3, about 300 friends and alumni checked in at the Freeman School tent outside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for tailgating prior to the Tulane-Rice football game. Brian Landry, this year’s guest chef, kept those fans happy with an awesome menu of slow roast pork dip sliders, Creole mustard coleslaw, Louisiana shrimp and citrus salad and chocolate hazelnut pudding. To see photos from Champions Square, visit the Freeman School’s Flickr page.

    Introducing new local email groups
MapTo reduce the clutter in your inbox, Freeman’s alumni office has created a host of new Listserv groups to send out region-specific news and notify you of Freeman events in your area. The locations — 39 cities and 14 foreign countries — were chosen based on the number of alumni in each, and we’re hoping that members will also use the groups to ask questions and share information with fellow alumni (“Who’s a great realtor?” “What’s the best elementary school?”). The mailing lists were populated with information from Tulanes centralized alumni database, so theres no need to enroll. If you live in one of the cities or countries with a new Listserv group, you should have already received a welcome message. If you did not receive a message and think you should have or if youd like to be added to another local group, contact Rhonda Brown, director of constituent services and initiatives, at or 504-862-8470 and she can add you to any group or groups youre interested in being a part of.
