Chinatown

The Tufts Chinatown Partnership, a program of the Lincoln Filene Center, works collaboratively with The Chinatown Coalition, community-based organizations, public agencies, and schools to develop projects that address community needs, as well as advance education for active citizenship for Tufts students. Dozens of Tufts students, undergraduate and graduate, are engaged in community-based organizations and schools in Chinatown each year. They are placed through courses, internships, and student programs.

  • Tufts Medical School has a Community Service Selectives course where first and second year students work with community organizations and public schools.
  • The Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning graduate program also works collaboratively with Chinatown organizations supporting development issues.
  • American Studies 131 “Civic Engagement in Boston’s Chinatown: Race, Class, Power, and Politics” engages undergrad students in a year-long course where they learn about Chinatown’s history and work at a community agency.

There are numerous opportunities for Tufts students, faculty and staff to engage and learn about the Chinatown community.
