Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Resources
Our campuses represent a microcosm of a multicultural and interconnected world. We are continually expanding our efforts to create a community that reflects global diversity, and that supports all students, faculty, and staff and works to address issues of equity and discrimination.
Office of Equal Opportunity
Tufts Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) ensures that the University maintains compliance with all federal, state, and local laws pertaining to anti-discrimination, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Title IX, through complaint resolution, programming and outreach. The OEO cooperates with members of the Tufts community to resolve complaints of discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual misconduct, and set forth University policies and guidelines that pertain to these areas of conflict.
Students, faculty, and staff members can report incidences of any misconduct to OEO. Students can also submit requests for reasonable accommodation to OEO for all academic and medical, mobility and physical access accommodations.

Student Accessibility Services
Tufts University provides reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities such as impaired hearing, speech, mobility, or vision, and students with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder. Assistance is also provided to students coping with serious illness. Student Accessibility Services handles the process of arriving at and implementing accommodations for students.
Student organizations at Tufts serve both an educational and social function. With over 300 organizations to choose from, students are able to come together on political and cultural issues, as well as individual interests.
Tufts University Chaplaincy
The Tufts University Chaplaincy is a dynamic hub supporting religious, spiritual, ethical, and cultural life for all members of the Tufts community on all of Tufts campuses. The University Chaplaincy provides pastoral care, supports religious and philosophical communities, educates about spiritual and ethical issues in society and the world, and promotes multifaith engagement within Tufts' tradition of progressive thought in education.
