ALAAMEA was originally formed in 2015 to "provide strategic advocacy to Asian, Latino, African American, Multi-Ethnic, and LGBTIQ faculty and staff," while also serving as a space for allies to these communities at Tulane. Although the ALAAMEA umbrella has expanded to include multiple other faculty and staff affinity groups, we retain the ALAAMEA name to honor and recognize the early ALAAMEA faculty and staff founders, leaders, and members who championed equity and justice work across our university.
We welcome the formation of new affinity groups. If you are interested in starting a faculty and staff affinity group underneath the ALAAMEA umbrella, please contact Anneliese Singh and Carolyn Barber-Pierre.
Our current Faculty and Staff affinity groups underneath the ALAAMEA umbrella include the following:
