15th President of Tulane University
Michael A. Fitts, dean and Bernard G. Segal Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania, has been named the 15th president of Tulane University.
Fitts will begin his term on July 1, when current President Scott Cowen retires after 16 years of service.
A native of Philadelphia, Fitts earned a bachelor of arts from Harvard University in 1975. Inspired by the film To Kill a Mockingbird and its heroic protagonist, attorney Atticus Finch, Fitts enrolled in law school at Yale University. He became an editor of the Yale Law Journal and earned his juris doctor in 1979. Fitts began teaching at Penn in 1985 after serving as a clerk for civil rights advocate Judge Leon Higginbotham and as an attorney in the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel.
Fitts has also written extensively on administrative law, presidential power, the separation of powers, improving the structure of political parties and executive branch decision-making.
- President-elect Michael Fitts
Mike not only meets these aspirations, he far exceeds them in every respect. He has a proven record of success at the top levels of higher education. He is extremely smart but unbelievably humble. He promises to be a great leader for Tulane and the city.
Mike possesses the rare combination of an affable personality and a keenly perceptive mind that will enable him to lead Tulane during this time of profound change and evolution in higher education.
