Failure Tales

Wave of Support, in partnership with Campus Health and The Goldman Center, hosted “Failure Tales” on Tuesday, March 21, 2023. The mission was to support students to develop a mindset that allows them to grow from setbacks as they navigate the unavoidable challenges of a rigorous education and a meaningful life.  

The event featured ten live storytellers from the Tulane community who shared their individual experiences with and definitions of “failure”. Our storytellers included 6 undergraduate students, one Tulane medical student, two Tulane staff members and one Tulane faculty member.  

Event attendees are able to share in the collective effort to shift our mindset around “failure”, listen to compelling personal stories, and learn about various ways to ask for help.
