Diplomat in Residence Program

The Tufts Diplomat in Residence (DIR) Program is a collaborative effort between the Tufts International Relations Program, the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and the U.S. Department of State, providing students unique access to a resident expert on careers in diplomacy. Tufts' DIR is one of only 16 senior Foreign Service Officers of the State Department placed in select universities across the country. The DIR can provide students with advice on State Department internships, taking the Foreign Service Exam, and other means of preparing for a diplomatic career.
