The Untold Story of Failure

The Story of Failure's Personal Narratives project encourages students, staff, faculty, and alumni to share their own personal stories of resilience. Anyone that has been successful can testify that the road to success is often messy, frightening, uncertain, and unpredictable. We hope as respected Tulane Community Members share their stories, it will normalize the idea of failure and setbacks. Our desire is that students will learn to feel more confident and determined in spite of failure, and believe that they can be successful even in the midst of adversity.

If you have a personal journey with resilience, and would be willing to work with us to highlight your story, we would be grateful. Please contact for more details.
