Overview

Founded in 1852, Tufts University is among the premier universities in the US. Tufts enjoys a global reputation for academic and scholarly excellence, as well as for the preparation of students in a variety of professions. Recognized by the Carnegie Foundation as a university with very high basic and clinical research activity, Tufts has highly-regarded programs in the liberal arts, sciences, engineering, medicine, dentistry, nutrition and international relations, which draw students from around the world with the highest academic achievement and standing. More than 98% of Tufts undergraduate students expect to pursue graduate or professional study after completion of a bachelor`s degree, and half of all undergraduates pursue coursework outside the US to add an international dimension to their work.

Mission Statement

As we shape our future, quality will be the pole star that guides us. We will seek quality in our teaching and research and in the services that support our academic enterprise. Our programs will be those that meet our own high standards, that augment each other, and that are worthy of the respect of our students and of scholars, educators, and the larger community. For students, our search for quality will mean opportunities both in and beyond the classroom to become well-educated, well-rounded individuals, professionals, and scholars. For faculty and staff, it will mean opportunities to realize their talents in the service of Tufts' goals. Fulfilling our vision of quality will mean choices. No university can do everything for everyone, and we will seek to do those things in which we can excel. Nor is quality static, and we will therefore welcome change and innovation, continually improving quality in every aspect of the University.
