#TuftsDayInTheLife

There’s a lot happening at Tufts every day. In the past, we’ve only been able to capture small slices of it here and there. On November 15, we want to capture all of it.

  • We’re encouraging all members of the Tufts community to share glimpses of their day—from the mundane moments to the magical—through the #TuftsDayInTheLife hashtag.
  • We’re looking for all types of content (videos, photos, audio, text) on all the major social media channels.
  • Selected items will be shared through the Tufts website, social channels, and other platforms.
  • Use the hashtag, and be eligible to win $50 in JumboCash or Rhino Bucks!

To truly make this work, we need lots of people involved—students, faculty, staff, and visitors. We hope you’ll join us!

A Message from Health and Wellness

October 24, 2018

The Department of Health and Wellness recognizes at its core that bias and discrimination have devastating consequences on marginalized individual’s physical and mental health. Data on race, ethnicity, gender and gender identity show time and time again that the experience of bias has a severe impact on individuals’ feelings of self-worth, willingness to receive care, and ability to attend to medical and mental health conditions as they arise. Clinicians must do the work to understand and respect the needs of all of their patients as a matter of the care they provide at the most basic and human level./em>

This week, we learned that transgender and non-binary individuals are at risk of being excluded (erased) from the government’s definition of gender. This has a strong negative and devastating impact on our students, staff and faculty who identity as transgender or non-binary. Our commitment to you stands strong and resolute. We see you, and we hope you will reach out as needed.

“There must be those among whom we can sit down and weep and still be counted as warriors.” Adrienne Rich
