Changemaker residents learn from solutions-oriented faculty spanning the natural sciences, humanities, engineering, and social sciences and meet with community leaders addressing social issues in New Orleans and around the world. Residents can work to create change on campus, volunteer in the community, and take leadership roles that allow them to create change from within. Residents will learn from and collaborate with Taylor Center staff and faculty—as well as other campus and community partners—to determine the type of experience they want to create together.
The Changemaker RLC is a collaboration between Housing and Residence Life and the Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design.
All first-year students at Tulane Universities are required to take a TIDES course. Members of Residential Learning Communities have the opportunity to enroll in a TIDES course that explores the concepts and values of their community in depth.
The Changemaker Community is in Paterson Hall.
You may apply for the Changemaker RLC through the student housing application process. Your answers to some supplemental, RLC-specific questions will be evaluated by a committee. If you are accepted, you will be notified and be sent more information on the room selection and roommate process.
