Pete is the Office of Study Abroad’s first point of contact for questions or concerns about or from students currently studying abroad (questions about study abroad programs run by the Freeman School of Business should be directed to: Mariette Thomas in the Goldring Institute). Pete works closely with Tulane students, parents, study abroad partners and the entire OSA team to ensure students have a safe and productive study abroad experience. With the assistance of Joseph Michel, Pete also oversees all summer study abroad programs run directly by the Office of Study Abroad. Please contact Pete with any questions or concerns about students currently in the field or about OSA summer study abroad programs.
