Tulane University President Scott Cowen is one of four university leaders around the nation to receive the 2009 Carnegie Corporation Academic Leadership Award.
The award recognizes university leaders who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence in undergraduate education, both teaching and research; the development of major interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary undergraduate and graduate programs that aim to bridge the gulf between the theoretical and the practical; focused university outreach to their local communities; cooperative efforts with business, education and civic leaders on initiatives such as K-12 school reform; and the expansion and improvement of international initiatives and global engagement.
"I am greatly honored by this award from one of the world's leading supporters of higher education," said Cowen. "The Carnegie Corporation has been a great friend and advocate of New Orleans during this time of rebuilding and renewal."
