Residential Experience

"Committee members agree on the importance of the residential experience in strengthening student life and in creating invaluable opportunities for incoming students to find and sustain community. The Committee learned of and supports the changes planned to begin in the coming academic year in the structure of Residence Life and in the creation of a more intentional residential experience—including, but not limited to, housing all first- year students in the same residence halls. However, Committee members emphasize this is only the first step in improving the residential experience for Tufts students."

What's Happening Now?

  • Creating a new professional staff model to meet students' needs, including an Associate Director of Housing Operations and an Associate Director of Residential Education
  • Restructuring Residential Life Student Staff to meet the differing needs of first-year and returning students and provide more meaningful leadership development for student staff
