Tulane for Every Body

Tulane for Every Body (TU4EB)

Tulane for Every Body is an initiative at Tulane University aimed at bringing awareness and advocating for the inclusion, acceptance, and support of all people regardless of body size and shape. The focus of this group is to draw attention to our true, authentic selves in a manner that steers away from our bodies and towards the qualities that make us valuable people.

  • Hold space for conversation around health, body image, and size in a safe and welcoming space, while introducing the tools necessary to implement body respect and self-compassion practices in the everyday lives of students.
  • Run regular workshop sessions, events, and projects that dive deep into personal experiences surrounding these issues.
  • Encourage others to embrace all aspects of themselves in a society that tells them they are never enough.
