“It’s encouraging to see diversity at every level within the institution; it demonstrates inclusion and exemplifies that opinions and contributions by underrepresented people are valued and respected. My voice matters.”
“Our differences are not meant to keep people from working together, studying together, collaborating together. We may all have different backgrounds, but that is important, because we all have something to contribute.”
“As a child living in Vietnam and then the United States, I saw disparity in medical care between these two countries. This is why I have been interested in finding ways to enhance the healthcare system.”
“It is important to take the opportunity to be part of the solution. There must be pioneers. I found Friedman to be a place where both students and faculty were willing to engage in dialogue around food, race, equity, and social justice.”
“This question about diversity, access, and inclusion in graduate-level education peaked my interest. Tufts is looking to increase diversity in as many forms here at the Office of Graduate Admissions. So, it was a fantastic fit for me.”
Tufts is working hard to listen and learn, create equal access to opportunities, and foster a climate in which everyone feels welcome to express their own identities and advance academically, professionally, and socially.
Diversity and inclusion are at the very foundation of the transformational experience at Tufts. It’s not just about making opportunities available to all; we believe by doing so, we enrich the lives of all.
