Benefits & Pay

Announcing the closing of the Benefit Service Center

In an effort to improve our service offering to the Tulane community, the decision has been made to no longer outsource calls to the Benefit Service Center, beginning July 1, 2020.  Employees will be directed to call the main HR number 504-865-4748 (HR4U), where their call will be forwarded to the appropriate benefits team member.  Employees can also submit requests by email to TUBenefits@tulane.edu.

This change will streamline the process for providing help to the Tulane community, and will also save money for the University. We are working with the call center to ensure that any issues currently in progress will be handled to completion.


Tulane University is committed to providing you with a comprehensive and competitive benefits package. You and your family have access to benefits and resources, such as quality health care coverage, an employee wellness program, tuition assistance for continuing education and help in establishing your financial future.

The information found on the HR/Benefits website is a brief summary of benefits provided and is subject to the terms and conditions of the detailed plan document that governs each individual benefit plan. For complete details of eligibility, definitions, benefits and guidelines, please refer to the appropriate plan document.

Pay & Compensation

Tulane University recognizes that competitive compensation is the cornerstone for recruiting, retaining, and motivating a diverse and qualified workforce. To this end, the University’s compensation philosophy is to pay all categories of employees at competitive levels established by external labor markets, considering both salary and benefits as a total compensation package.
