Hope From Despair
Tulane shares its disaster recovery experience with the University of Chile
This video shares Tulane's experience of disaster recovery with the University of Chile, which is undergoing similar recovery after a natural disaster. Tulane students, as well as Tulane president Scott Cowen, discuss their experiences leaving and returning to Tulane after Hurricane Katrina, and the many reasons why they were drawn back to New Orleans. DRLA co-director for graduate programs Charles Figley discusses disaster recovery in the collegiate environment more generally, and encourages students to create "hope from despair"- the process of returning and building after a disaster.
