Identity-based Centers

COVID-19 Update: All six Identity-based Centers will remain open throughout Spring 2020 with normal hours. Appointments and check-ins will continue via phone or video conference beginning March 16. Although events through the Identity-based Centers have been canceled or postponed for the remainder of the semester, students are strongly encouraged to seek resources and services through each Center and are welcome to stop by the Centers before their departure from campus. 

We are a collective of leaders, educators, and most importantly, people looking to serve as a resource for all undergraduate and graduate students interested in thinking about social identities and the ways they impact our lives and our world. We offer students opportunities for events, discussion, and leadership on issues of identity, diversity, and social justice. Most importantly, we provide all students a place to go and a place to be heard. Visit us at any of our Centers.

Tufts Community Response Volunteer Groups

During this unprecedented and challenging time, Tisch College is supporting the University’s response to our communities. This week we announced how you can be prepared to help by joining our online platform: Tufts Civic Impact. We will use this platform to organize and train a cadre of Tufts students and staff who could be deployed, if/when they are needed, either virtually or in-person (health, safety and state or local travel restrictions allowing), to support response efforts on our campus and in partnership with our host communities. The types of tasks are still under development and will be based on community needs. Right now we are soliciting volunteers so that we are prepared to respond if/when we are needed. To learn more and for a step-by-step guide on how to join the groups, please visit the Tufts Community Response Volunteer Groups webpage.

Facebook Live, March 23 and April 3, 2020

Deans Jim M. Glaser (Arts and Sciences) and Jianmin Qu (Engineering) also joined the conversation.

To help answer additional questions about academic support, events, financial aid, and other topics, we hosted a second Facebook Live session on April 3 with Join Sylvester Bracey, '20, and Carolina Olea Lezama, '22, of the TCU Senate, as well as Dean Nancy Thompson, Dean Christopher Rossi, Dean Nandi Bynoe, Dean Kirsten Behling, John Wescott of Campus Life, Joshua Hartman of Residential Life, Margot Cardamone of the FIRST Resource Center, and Patricia Reilly of Financial Aid.
