Stone Center Celebrates Important Member of its Family

March 2nd, 2016

On Friday, February 26th faculty, staff, students and friends emerged from across Tulane‘€™s campus and the city to celebrate Ms. Barbara Carter, Stone Center Administrative Secretary. Over 75 people attended the celebration in honor of Ms. Carter. To view pictures of the event, please visit our Flickr site.

Barbara has been an employee with Tulane University for over 30 years. She spent 22 years working at Tulane‘€™s School of Architecture and 10 years at the Stone Center for Latin American Studies. The network of friends she has built over this time is expansive. She was the first person you saw when entering the Stone Center, the voice on the other end of the line when calling and a welcome friend when you needed one.

A quick walk across campus with Barbara by your side will reveal the impact she has had on campus. If you are by her side on this walk, you will quickly learn she has friends in every corner of campus and each one is special to her. Her spirit is infectious and her charm, unique. Barbara is an indelible part of Tulane.

Barbara took the Voluntary Separation Package and left the university officially this past January 2016. You can find her around town enjoying music at a local festival or on campus visiting friends. She will maintain her Tulane email address and can be reached at
