About The Magazine

 

NEWCOMB is an annual production of the Newcomb Alumnae Association and the Newcomb Institute.

NEWCOMB is printed using income from interest-bearing endowed funds at the Newcomb Institute, including the Newcomb Alumnae Periodical Fund, established through the kindness of Ann Hodge Macomber (NC ’47). Mailing costs are supported by proceeds from the Mignon Faget Newcomb Jewelry Collection.

What Is Newcomb Institute?

The H. Sophie Newcomb Memorial College Institute (Newcomb Institute) is an interdisciplinary, academic center of Tulane University

 

Our Mission…

is to develop leaders, discover solutions to intractable gender problems of our time, and provide opportunities for students to experience synergies between curricula, research, and community engagement through close collaboration with faculty.

 

What Do We Do?

We shape the future by educating students to achieve gender equity. 

We build ambition and confidence by connecting students with faculty, alumnae, donors, and women leaders outside of the classroom, giving them exemplars who inspire, share strategies, and foster community.

We overcome obstacles by searching to discover solutions to the most intractable gender problems of our time.

 We empower women by creating synergy between teaching, research, and community engagement as a research university.

 We facilitate undergraduates in conducting research with faculty.

 We produce, document, preserve, and share knowledge about women, gender, and feminism in the Gulf South.

 We develop leaders by fostering intellectual and activist communities.

 We honor the legacy of H. Sophie Newcomb by mobilizing the 30,000 graduates of Newcomb College and others who support gender equity to support undergraduates.
