The StAAR Center offers academic support through one-on-one academic success coaching, writing consultations, and tutoring, along with group programs and workshops. The StAAR Center also supports students with documented disabilities to ensure access to their Tufts experiences. Our programs promote engaged, collaborative learning that builds on students’ strengths while addressing their concerns and questions.


The Student Accessibility and Academic Resources (StAAR) Center values the diverse educational and cultural experiences of every student and promotes access to an inclusive and collaborative learning environment.  As a team and as individuals, we foster students’ educational growth and awareness, self-advocacy and resiliency as it relates to their Tufts academic experience and beyond.  Our initiatives engage students, faculty and staff to proactively support the learning needs of the Tufts community.  The StAAR Center offers a variety of resource support to all students in the Schools of Arts and Science, Engineering, the SMFA and Fletcher.
