Tisch College facilitates strong, meaningful, and sustainable relationships between Tufts and its host communities. We support and encourage students and faculty members to work with partner communities in addressing community-identified needs. These partnerships can take many forms, including academic research, curriculum development, forums and conferences, coursework, internships, volunteer work, and more. Our work includes:
- Advancing research, education, and community service partnerships between organizations in Tufts’ host communities and Tufts students and faculty.
- Developing resources for active citizenship at Tufts.
- Operating the Carol R. Goldberg Civic Engagement Initiative in collaboration with The Boston Foundation, and supporting projects that address critical local public policy issues and capacity-building for host community organizations.
- Partnering with youth-serving organizations on college access and success, through campus tours and workshops.
