Hurricane Katrina was an unprecedented event in U.S. history in terms of its impact-psychologically, emotionally and financially. The storm took its devastating toll on individuals and institutions, a toll which is still present in many ways.

It also articulates the lessons learned from this experience, which Tulane found valuable in maintaining and supporting its community during the crisis.
