This week nearly 3,000 students in Tulsa Public Schools and Community Action Project summer classes will encounter a young, energized and diverse Teach for America corps of teachers in training from across the country. Janet Levit, Dean and Dean John Rogers Endowed Chair of The University of Tulsa College of Law, could not be more excited.
Lately, I’ve been in the market for a new home, and one of the first things I do before making an actual visit to the property is watch a virtual tour online. Sure standard photography is nice, but a virtual tour gives me a 360 degree view of the floor plan and establishes a sense of place. Students often do the same thing when it comes to shopping for a law school. Before even setting foot on the campus, they’ll let their fingers do the walking.
We are normally the one handing out the grades, but this month the National Jurist handed out employment Transparency Grades for all law schools. The University of Tulsa received an A+, a mark achieved by only 6 of the 197 law schools in the country. “We are pleased by this recognition,” says Kristine Bridges, Director of Professional Development, “and our commitment to transparency will remain a high priority.”
