Dear Tufts Community,

Your comments and contributions to our strategic planning effort continue to inspire us as we move forward in the engagement period. I want to ensure that everyone in the community has an opportunity to engage in this process, and to that end, multiple venues for discussion have been organized.
The first of 8 focus groups will occur tomorrow. Please see the full list of sessions and details listed below. These focus groups are open to the entire Tufts community on a first-come, first-served RSVP basis, as space is limited. For sessions available only on the Medford campus, video conferencing will be made available on the Boston and Grafton campuses. Lunch will be provided at each focus group and video conference location.
