The Tulane University President's Medal was established in 1999. The medal is awarded at the sole discretion of the president to individuals who have distinguished themselves by their actions and who have contributed to the well-being of Tulane University, the city of New Orleans, or the world. Designed by the late Professor Emeritus Franklin Adams, the front of the medal features a sculpted TU symbol inspired by an architectural detail on the exterior of two historic buildings on the uptown campus.
