Thank you for coming to the website for the African American Congress of Tulane. We hope that you take the time to look around the site to learn about our organization and our upcoming events and activities.


The African-American Congress of Tulane, ACT was established in 1969 as the first African-American organization on the Tulane campus. The purpose of the organization is the same today as it was a quarter of a century ago. That purpose was, and remains to be, serving the needs of the African-American population of the university.

What We Do

  • promoting cultural, academic, social, and political growth and awareness of issues and problems relevant to the Black community
  • encourage a positive image of African Americans and to support its members in achieving their educational goals
  • strive for academic excellence among our members through the use of study groups, mentoring programs, tutorial programs, and one of the largest test, book, and workbook files on campus
