Beginning in Fall 2018, Tufts Table is a university-wide community dinner series sponsored by the Bridging Differences Initiative and co-hosted by colleagues from across the university. Tufts Table, is open to students, faculty and staff from across the university who wish to join together to share a meal and lively discussion on topics of local, national, and global relevance.
Each dinner has a new co-host from across the university, and is facilitated by undergraduate and graduate students who have either taken a course in, or received training in facilitating and moderating.
What is the goal?
The goal of Tufts Table is to establish connections among diverse members of the university while sharing perspectives on subjects that are significant to our community. Discussion highlights and observations will be shared with the community the week after each Tufts Table event. Topic suggestions are welcomed and can be submitted by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When do the dinners take place?
Dinners are held across the academic year. Future events can be found on our event calendar. Each dinner will feature a new co-host and topic, and locations will rotate across each of our campuses. Registration is free and open to all members of the Tufts community. Individuals may request up to two tickets per dinner. Attendance will be rotated to welcome as many difference perspectives as possible.
