Organizations are increasingly looking for chief diversity officers, diversity managers, consultants, educational administrators, human resources, and/or corporate professionals that can transform their communities. At Tufts, you'll become the strong, informed, skilled leader that can help create more inclusive organizations. Featured on CNN Money, this interdisciplinary program prepares students for careers in a variety of industries and professional sectors.

To be an effective leader in diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice, you must understand the social contexts, historical legacies, and psychological processes that result in implicit bias, discrimination, and marginalization. In our programs, you will learn the scholarly theories and practical tools to implement institutional changes that promote diversity and foster inclusivity.

You will join students from a variety of backgrounds and scholarly fields, all united in their desire to explore diversity in interdisciplinary contexts. Upon completion of the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice Leadership master’s program, you will be capable of:

  • Engaging in organizational observation using appropriate methods
  • Implementing necessary changes to enhance equality and prevent marginalization
  • Prioritizing these changes based on the culture and needs of the organization
  • Designing and evaluating programs to enact these changes
  • Leading organizations through sustainable transformation
