Study Abroad

There are a wide range of academic, personal, and professional benefits to be gained through studying abroad. Many students find it is a truly transformative skill-building experience. Tufts University has been offering study abroad programs to undergraduate students for five decades. You may also choose from hundreds of approved programs run by non-Tufts providers. Get started with "Study Abroad First Steps"!

Do You Identify as Transgender or Non-binary?

Do You Identify as Transgender or Non-binary?

Are you a member of the Tufts community who identifies as transgender or non-binary? The Trans Support Task Force at Tufts is currently reviewing the needs of trans identified students, faculty, and staff, and we are hoping, as part of our work, to have confidential conversations with transgender and non-binary community members. The purpose of our focus groups will be to collect qualitative data that accurately portrays the experiences of trans and non-binary people on our campuses. This data will lay the groundwork for policy changes that will improve the quality of life for members of Tufts' LGBTQ+ community.

The Trans Support Task Force is comprised of administrators, faculty, and staff. Our questions will be focused on the general climate, the ability to change one’s name or preferred gender, and access to public accommodations on all three campuses. Each session will last up to 90 minutes, and light refreshments will be provided. The data we collect will be submitted to the Provost's office for review and will remain strictly condential.

If you are a Tufts community member who identifies as transgender or non-binary and would be willing to share your experiences with the Trans Support Task Force, please register as a focus group participant using our online form.

Register to meet with the Trans Support Task Force
