Our Vision: Institutional Inclusive Excellence

At Tufts, diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and access (DEIJA) are central to the academic mission of the university.

We believe in the inherent worth of all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation and gender identity or expression, physical and intellectual ability, religion, geographic origin and language background, and socioeconomic status.

We recognize that it is not enough to enroll a diverse student body. We must make certain that all our students thrive here and have opportunities to participate fully in the Tufts experience.

We will further the university’s commitment to equal opportunity and inclusion for all students, faculty, staff, and university leaders across all campuses and throughout all our schools.

We aspire to deliver the promise that Tufts is a place where all members of our community feel a sense of belonging and are empowered to contribute in ways that celebrate the most important parts of their identity.

We will create an environment that encourages and embraces open, respectful dialogue and civic engagement both inside and beyond the classroom even when it comes to topics on which there may be profound differences.

We realize that inclusion, in and of itself, is not enough. We aspire to create interactive inclusion: paths of opportunity that intersect with one another; paths on which diverse perspectives flow freely throughout Tufts, elevating our community, and ultimately—as students graduate and pursue their dreams—elevating communities throughout the world.


As we strive towards institutional inclusive excellence across all four of our campuses, Tufts benefits from a wealth of perspectives; students, faculty, staff, and university leaders.

Tufts University Cabinet on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (TUCDEI)

Established in 2019, the Tufts University Cabinet on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (TUCDEI) was formed to bring together representatives from each school to inform, advise, and support diversity and inclusion initiatives at Tufts.

Division of Student Diversity and Inclusion (DSDI) 

A collective of leaders and educators, DSDI serves as a resource for students interested in thinking about social identities and the ways they impact our lives and our world. We offer students opportunities for events, discussion, and leadership on issues of identity, diversity, and social justice.
