Emerging Scholars Instructional Website: A Guide

This website provides weekly instructional guidance for Emerging Scholars


Hello 2017 Scholars,

Welcome to the Tulane University Emerging Scholars Environmental Health Sciences Academy!  We hope the Academy will be the beginning of new and exciting learning experiences for you in environmental health science.  In Week 1 you will participate in two EHS rotations in water quality and toxicology, as well as engage in a hands-on field experience to Turtle Cove Environmental Research Station. You will also have the opportunity to meet with your faculty advisor and mentor to discuss in detail the research project they have planned for you to conduct this summer.  The Emerging Scholars Team of faculty, mentors, and staff are looking forward to working with each of you to make this a productive learning experience. So lets get to work!
