Established in 2019, the Tufts University Cabinet on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (TUCDEI) was formed to bring together representatives from all of Tufts' schools to inform, advise, and support Diversity and Inclusion initiatives at Tufts.

Members of the cabinet were appointed by their respective deans and hold the position of Assistant or Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion within their school. Other members include Tufts' Associate Directors for Diversity and Inclusion Education and Training, Adriana Black and Maren Greathouse. The cabinet reports to the Provost and is chaired by Tufts' Chief Diversity Officers, Rob Mack and Joyce Sackey.
