News From Tulane: And Then We'll Kill the Engineering Program
I am on the near-daily News From Tulane email list. Here's what I got from them yesterday:
As the 2006 Hurricane Season begins, nearly 50 national experts who make their living making life livable along the world's beautiful but volatile coasts will gather for the Tulane Engineering Forum, "Engineering in a Coastal Environment" June 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the New Orleans Hilton.And then they can kill the 110+ year old Tulane Engineering School. The stoning of the program will commence following the forum.
Seriously, this appears to be an excellent opportunity to stage a protest . . .
I was involved in a Tulane-related function over the past week. I personally have no affiliation with Tulane although I have several relatives which received, ironically, Engineering degrees from the university. I had a question to most Tulane-affiliated people I met: What is your opinion of Scott Cowen? Let's just say that every single response was not favorable for Mr. Cowen. My money is he's out of New Orleans to so-called greener pastures within two years . . . . moving on like his Kent State-bound buddy Lester Lefton--who I understand was the more influential one regarding the hit jobs of Tulane Engineering and Newcomb College.
