COVID-19 Update: All six centers within the Division of Student Diversity and Inclusion will be physically closed for the Fall 2020 until it is safe enough to return to campus. However, we will be in community virtually through our social media. We will be providing updates as we get closer to the Spring 2021 semester.

In light of the recent statement on the Jumbo mask incident, as the members of the Division of Student Diversity and Inclusion we wanted to share these thoughts. We recognize the hurt and harm that this incident caused some in our community and remain committed to providing ongoing support and advocacy for you. We will continue to center community, equity, justice and collective action. 

 

The Division would like to offer our community a time and place to connect and process this information.

As we enter Black Legacy Month and celebrate the legacy of Black pioneers, activists, and ancestors who came before us, we also continue to commit ourselves to a future where Black people thrive. 

 

We encourage you all to keep your vision for equity and justice at the forefront of your mind as you move into this semester. Please remember to continue to center your own healing and rest during this time as well. 

 

In community, 

The Division of Student Diversity and Inclusion 

 

 

Anti-Racist Resources

About

In 1983, a small group of students took the initiative to create a space for themselves on the Tufts University campus.  After a ten-year effort full of discussions, debate, adversity, and modifications with the Tufts Community Union (TCU) and university administration, came the inevitable success and establishment of a university recognized center with a full-time director in October of 1993. Over the years, the Latinx Center has experienced several transformations with the purpose of serving the Latinx community and community at large.  Whether you are a prospective student, current student, or alumnus of Tufts University, our traditions, history, and perseverance serve as a reminder of the permanence of the Latinx Center.

Mission

The Tufts Latinx Center was founded in October 1993 as a space and resource for Tufts University students and community members to gather, learn, share experiences, show support and appreciation of Latinx identities. As one of the centers within the Division of Student Diversity and Inclusion, the Latinx Center seeks to provide resources for inclusion, education, academic achievement, and cultural programming in collaboration with students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community at large.

Vision

The Latinx Center is a welcoming community providing a dedicated environment to engage in research, celebration, collaboration, and dialogue to inspire advocacy, appreciation, and social change within the Latinx community. The center offers academic and personal advising, mentorship, and guidance for all students.
