Programs and Research Groups
We offer a variety of programs and research opportunities related to diversity and inclusion that serve current and prospective students, faculty, staff, and our surrounding communities. We encourage you to explore them and apply for those that will enrich and elevate your experience at the university.
Tufts as an Anti-Racist Institution is a strategic university initiative announced on July 8, 2020. SOE is proud to support this initiative by inviting our students, faculty and staff to take the pledge and celebrate our commitment to creating a diverse, welcoming environment for all individuals. Visit the Graduate Education Office at SEC, Anderson 113, to take the pledge, sign the poster and get a t-shirt with the Acknowledge, Commit, Transform (ACT) logo!
Most of us have had that moment where someone says something racist/offensive and our brain freezes and stops us from responding. Having a few phrases in your back pocket can help prepare you for next time. Read this list and pick out a couple that easily roll off your tongue.
Zoombombing is the unwanted, disruptive intrusion, generally by Internet trolls, into a video-conference call. Zoom raiders often employ shocking imagery, racial epithets and profanity to derail video conferences. There should always be a plan. Check out the resource to build your own response protocol.
University Student Government
The Tufts Engineering Student Council is an organization that collaborates with deans of the Engineering School to promote communication between the student body and faculty. We provide opportunities for academic, pre-professional, and extracurricular advancement of Tufts engineers. The council also manages resources for students to gain further insight into their discipline, learn about post-graduation opportunities and engage with the engineering community at Tufts.
In 2023, students in the Engineering Student Council raised $865 for a the Mystic River Watershed Association, a local nonprofit committed to protecting and resorting the Mystic River.
The Graduate Student Council (GSC) serves as the official representative body for students in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), the School of Engineering (SOE), and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA) at Tufts University.
Tufts Community Union (TCU) is the overarching term for all members of the Tufts undergraduate community. Every single undergraduate student is a member of the TCU. Student life at Tufts is established by the TCU Constitution, which directs and regulates student government, student organizations, and the funds raised by the activities fee.
