Tufts values outstanding teaching and encourages faculty engagement with students beyond the classroom.

Academic Resource Center

The Academic Resource Center offers tutoring in writing, time management, and public speaking for all AS&E students (grad and undergrad) and provides tutoring in math, science, foreign languages, and other course-specific subjects for undergraduates. All ARC tutoring is free of charge.

Faculty are invited to participate in the Writing Fellows Program: Join a group of professors and talented undergraduate writing tutors dedicated to improving student writing by making time outside of class and office hours for drafting, feedback, and revising.

Scholar Development

Tufts provides resources and programs to identify, support, and nurture the talents of undergraduate and graduate students as they conduct research, explore research opportunities, or seek funding for future endeavors through nationally-competitive scholarships and grants. Faculty are encouraged to nominate students and to serve as mentors, recommenders, and on scholarship selection committees. The Summer Scholars Program unites professors and students in funded summer research projects. The Undergraduate Research Fund provides reimbursement for costs incurred as part of a student’s original research.

Academic Advising

In the Schools of Arts & Sciences and Engineering, faculty are directly responsible for advising undergraduates. Faculty serve as the advisors of students who have a declared a major, and they serve as pre-major advisors for first-year students and undeclared sophomores.
