The purpose of Tulane’s ALAAMEA is strategic advocacy on behalf of Tulane University’s underrepresented faculty and staff community. These underrepresented groups include an alliance of members and allies of diverse social identity groups of the Tulane community including Asian, Latino, African American, Multi-Ethnic, and LGBTIQ faculty and staff. The Alliance exists to provide a forum for dialogue and subsequent action on issues and concerns that impact the university’s underrepresented Faculty and Staff.
