Inclusive & Affirming Spaces

Whether you're on the uptown or downtown campus, you can expect Tulane University to be a welcoming and inclusive environment. We offer several options for affirming spaces on campus that go beyond to provide a welcoming environment where you can bring your full self without hesitation

The Center for Intecultural Life

The Center is a comfortable space on the garden level of the LBC that has couches and chairs for students to drop in and relax any time. It is comprised of the Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity (OGSD), the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA), and Religious Life. Here you will find the staff of OGSD and OMA, a living room/study area, Internet access, a TV, DVD player, movies, games, information, and resources. Students may reserve the conference room for meetings. We are currently located on the garden level of the Lavin-Bernick Center for Student Life (LBC) in Suite G04

Wednesdays with the O

Each week we invite students to join us in the LBC Mezzanine for free lunch, music, and intercultural life updates starting with our Fall Kickoff.

The Relaxation & Meditation Lounge

The Relaxation Lounge is located next to the Center on the garden level of the LBC. The space is available to anyone who needs a quiet space to reflect, pray, meditate, or just be. On Thursdays the space is reserved for self care massages from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.. Feel free to drop in during normal business hours. If you would like to access the room for prayer please send your name and splash card number to sabdulahad@tulane.edu to be added to the list of approved users and you can tap in anytime you need to.

Treat Yourself Thursdays

Thursdays 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. The Relaxation & Meditation Lounge

It is important to create healthy habits and we believe that starts with defining your personal self care routine. The Office of Multicultural Affairs offers complimentary chair massages every Thursday to help you build better mental health habits. Recognizing it takes time and effort to develop a good habit, we wanted to give space to try doing something nice for yourself on Thursdays. It can include stopping by the Center for a weekly massage, or maybe it's engaging in meditation or yoga on the quad. Regardless of the habit selected, we want students to do something special just for themselves. We developed Treat Yourself Thursdays in partnership with The Well for Health Promotion and we're grateful for their support of this effort.
