Tufts is a student-centered research university dedicated to the creation and application of knowledge. We are committed to providing transformative experiences for students and faculty in an inclusive and collaborative environment where creative scholars generate bold ideas, innovate in the face of complex challenges and distinguish themselves as active citizens of the world.
The core of Tufts is captured in our mission and vision statements, which exemplify the spirit of what Tufts is, as well as the values and priorities that will guide us over the coming years.
Research at Tufts is about breaking down walls—between fields, between faculty and students, between what is and what could be. Innovation and interdisciplinary collaboration are the foundations of discovery at Tufts. Our world-class researchers push boundaries and ask questions that will take our knowledge to the next level.
Career Center - We will help you identify your career goals and gain the skills, resources, contacts, and tools necessary to achieve them. Whether you are deciding on a major or career, looking for an internship or job, or considering graduate school, we can help. We offer a wide range of employment opportunities to support a diverse academic environment.
Student Affairs. We are a central resource and can help you out when you’re not sure where to start. We support an inclusive and safe community for all students and promote leadership development in partnership with many other campus offices. Our mission is to help all Tufts thrive in our living and learning community.
We offer a variety of housing options for students of all class years. Within each hall we aim to foster an inclusive community that meets each student’s academic and social needs. We have halls specifically for the first-year experience, the continuing student experience, and the graduate student experience.
Tufts' libraries across all campuses provide essential resources, information and technology to support your studies, scholarship and research.
Health and Wellness - We are a diverse team of healthcare professionals who are passionate about providing comprehensive and integrative health and wellness care to help all undergraduate and graduate students enhance and maintain their physical, social and emotional health.
The Tufts University Department of Athletics features excellent facilities for the entire Tufts University community to use. One of our major functions is to encourage the university community to start a personal program of recreation so that you can experience the benefits and joy of feeling fit and having fun.
We try to provide as much free recreational time as possible, given the limitations of space and the demands of intercollegiate athletics, physical education classes, intramural sports, and special events.
