My name is Kristin, and I am the Associate Director of the Center for STEM Diversity and oversee the Bridge to Engineering Success at Tufts (BEST) program.

Through BEST, we aim to build a strong cohort of engineers who will support and encourage each other through graduation and beyond. BEST is more than a six week summer program, it is a family. The six-week summer component gives students an opportunity to take courses and participate in workshops designed to assist in the transition from high school to college.
