Diversity is one of the cornerstones of the educational mission of the School of Engineering, as well as of Tufts University as a whole. We aim to create a healthy and vibrant community of people from a wide variety of backgrounds, with a wide range of experiences, and with diverse talents and interests. We are committed to ensuring that all members of our community-students, faculty, and staff-are able to be productive members of both an increasingly diverse United States and an increasingly interconnected world. It is essential that we build a diverse community at Tufts so that we all have the opportunity to learn from each other.
Office of Equal Opportunity
Tufts' Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) exists to ensure that the university's commitment and goals toward equal opportunity are integral components of Tufts' policies. The staff of OEO further this mission by ensuring that the university maintains compliance with all federal, state, and local laws pertaining to anti-discrimination, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Title IX, through complaint resolution, programming and outreach. Tufts OEO cooperates with members of the Tufts community to resolve complaints of discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual misconduct, and set forth university policies and guidelines that pertain to these areas of conflict. The OEO staff also ensures that the university maintains compliance with all federal, state, and local laws pertaining to affirmative action. Tufts OEO is guided by the university's commitment to and desire for a truly integrated, interactive, productive, successful, and diverse body of students, faculty, staff, and community members. Visit the OEO website to learn more and read the non-discrimination statement.
