On October 7th, 2013, Tufts University President Anthony Monaco wrote to the university community about important, proactive efforts to ensure the continued safety and well-being of students, faculty, staff, and visitors. In his message, the President issued the following violence free university policy statement:
Tufts is committed to maintaining an environment in which individuals are safe to learn, work, and live. In support of this commitment, we affirm that Tufts will not tolerate violence or threats of violence anywhere on its campuses or in connection with university-sponsored programs.
In support of the President’s policy statement, Tufts has established the Tufts Threat Assessment and Management (TTAM) program to identify, evaluate and address potentially threatening situations affecting members of the Tufts community. Visit the TTAM website.
