In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans, flooding 70 percent of Tulane's uptown campus and all the buildings of its downtown health sciences campus. Tulane's faculty, staff and students were dispersed around the country for an entire semester. Under President Cowen's leadership the campus was repaired and on December 8, 2005, the Board of Tulane approved his Renewal Plan, a sweeping effort that strengthens and focuses the university's academic mission while strategically addressing its current and future operations in the post-Katrina era. A remarkable 87 percent of Tulane students returned for classes in January of 2006.
