Connecting the Community of Tufts Scholars (CCTS) is a new cluster hiring programdesigned to attract and support faculty whose work centers on race, equity, and disadvantaged communities in the U.S. and around the world.
Tufts will hire three clusters of five faculty over the next 3-5 years, adding a total of fifteen new faculty to join our strong interdisciplinary research community. The Office of the Provost will be jointly funding these positions with participating schools
The first CCTS cluster is focused on climate. Future clusters are open-themed and we will solicit community feedback.
Faculty clusters receive mentoring and professional development to foster community and provide opportunities to use their research, scholarship, and teaching to shape important dialogues.
