After 10 years, Tisch College is strongly woven into the fabric of the university, with every school embracing active citizenship in and out of the classroom.
Undergraduates from the School of Arts and Sciences and School of Engineering may select from Tisch College’s growing list of 108 active citizenship courses from 30 departments. Additionally, all 3317 undergraduates living on campus engage through Tisch College’s partnership with the Office of Residential Life and Learning.
Students from the School of Medicine are required to complete 50 hours of community service learning, students from the School of Dental Medicine must participate in a five-week “externship” at one of 25 facilities across the country and students from the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy are required to take a public policy course. At the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine students actively serve through numerous community programs and students from The Fletcher School arrive as impressive world leaders and graduate as innovative problem-solvers with strategic cross-sector networks.
With this strong foundation, Tisch College will expand and deepen these opportunities, ensuring every student has a truly meaningful civic experience at Tufts.

This green roof resulted from the interdisciplinary collaboration of three Tisch College Faculty Fellows — Colin Orians, School of Arts and Sciences, John Durant, School of Engineering and Kathleen Merrigan, formerly with the Friedman School and currently U.S. Deputy Secretary of Agriculture. To date, Tisch College has supported 65 Faculty Fellows to better integrate active citizenship with their research and teaching interests.
