Welcome to the Office of the Provost's graduate diversity site!
At Tufts University we define diversity in a broad sense, as dictated by demographic and cultural shifts at home and abroad, and reflected in the combination of offices and initiatives throughout our institution. A diverse student body is fundamental to the academic mission to provide multiple views and perspectives that enhance the teaching, research and development of new knowledge.
As society prepares the next generation of leaders, higher education opportunities should be accessible to all regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability, country of origin, economic background or veteran status. The Provost’s Office is committed to providing equal access to educational opportunities through the recruitment and support of programs that promote diversity, foster successful academic experiences to develop, and nurture the leaders of the next generation.
