Tulane Black Student Union (tBSU) - Established in 1969 as The African American Congress at Tulane, what we now know as the Tulane Black Student Union was the first African American student group on Tulane's campus. In 2011, The African American Congress at Tulane became The Tulane Black Student Union in order to better reflect the changes the organization and the university had undergone over the years. The Tulane Black Student Union or simply, the tBSU, has expanded to better reflect the interests and experiences of the entire black student population on campus.

Chinese Rights Initiative at Tulane (CRIT) - CRIT stands for Chinese Rights Initiative of Tulane; an organization established based on the need to protect Chinese students' rights and the desire to facilitate cultural communication. It has been shown that Chinese students have been bullied and misunderstood based on their nationality, culture, and race. It is time for our voice to be heard. And, it is time for us to unite and to fight against any discrimination based on nationality, culture, and race through offering assistance and raising cultural awareness. To be specific, we will build connections with relevant authorities, provide discrimination case management and personal counseling. We will hold orientations to strengthen pride and eliminate cultural confusions. Our ultimate mission is to contribute to the preservation of equality among all races.
