Guest Faculty Program

The Guest Faculty & Staff Program was developed to provide Tulane University employees with an up close and personal look of the Tulane University Football program. This game day experience gives 3 members of the Tulane faculty and staff, along with one guest each, an opportunity to witness the entire Green Wave football process from pre-game preparation to the final play of the game. Faculty & staff members will also have the opportunity to learn about the daily operations of the Academic Services Center (ASC) and have the chance to meet, communicate with and ask questions of Tulane coaches and the ASC staff. These interactions offer insight into the physical & mental demands placed on our athletes here at Tulane. The program also promotes awareness of how the ASCstaff monitors, advises, counsels, and provides the necessary resources for our student athletes to be successful not only on the playing field, but in theclassroom as well.

Program Outline:

The Guest Faculty & Staff game day experience begins with a tour of the athletic facilities. Guests will then be escorted to the Star Suite where food and beverages will be served and where guests will have an opportunity to meet and interact with position coaches and potential Tulane student athletes. Guests will then make their way to the playing field to watch the Green Wave's pre-game warm-up and meet Tulane football Head Coach, Curtis "CJ" Johnson. Prior to kick-off, guests will be shown to their seats to enjoy the first half and cheer on the Tulane Green Wave. During half time, guests will be escorted to the locker room tohear Coach Johnson's halftime speech and in-game adjustments. Guests will then head back to their seats to watch the halftime entertainment and enjoy the second half. Our goal for this program is to continue to build and foster agreat working relationship between ASC and Tulane faculty/staff, while sharing a fun and unique experience.
