We are a central resource and can help you out when you’re not sure where to start. We support an inclusive and safe community for all students and promote leadership development in partnership with many other campus offices.

Campus Culture

Tufts students describe the University's campus culture.

Our Mission

Tufts Student Life is committed to creating a dynamic, respectful, and kind community that prepares students to live in a complex and diverse world with dignity and purpose. By giving students the opportunity to learn how to navigate complexity, manage difficult situations, and make challenging decisions, we inspire them to discover new things about themselves, others, and the world around them every day.

Sharing Community Values

Student Life accomplishes its mission in and through a unique community that shares certain core values. At Tufts, our community members seek standing and strive for contribution as:

  • Curious, creative, and contributing Citizens of the World
  • Anti-racist in words and action; embracing Tufts’ DEIJ programs and approach
  • Responsible community members sharing experiences that develop empathy, connection, and respect for one another
  • Committed to Social and Restorative Justice
