Upcoming Events & Deadlines

Nov 17, 2015

Last day for undergraduate first year students to DROP courses without record of enrollment; last day for undergraduate first year students to select PASS/FAIL option

Nov 17, 2015

Fatima El-Tayeb takes a comparative approach to understanding racialization in both the U.S. and Europe, in order to challenge a U.S.-centric idea of “post-raciality" and the notion of a colorblind Europe. El-Tayeb critically discusses how racial difference figures in both representations of “the West”; where U.S. “post-racial” multiculturalism works through differential inclusion, Europe defines itself as unaffected by race and racism.

Student Personas

Students outside during matriculation The ACE Fellows act as academic and community role models, assist first-year students in learning about campus resources, and help to create a welcoming community for students’ personal development. These committed undergraduates also create innovative co-curricular opportunities for the Tufts community.
Students talking at matriculation The Judicial Advocacy Program offers Tufts students opportunities to work as advocates supporting their peers in the Student Judicial Process. If you are interested in issues of social justice or policy, or if you think working as an advocate might help as you prepare for graduate or law school, the Judicial Advocates can be a great opportunity to develop skills and meet students with similar interests.
