Active Citizenship

Tufts University has a strong heritage of educating people to be committed public citizens and leaders by infusing them with the ethic of civic and social responsibility. On the forefront of this effort is the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life. Tisch College plays a critical role by actively encouraging development of this ethic among its students, faculty, and staff in myriad ways across all the Tufts campuses.

Tisch College helps ensure that students graduate from Tufts prepared to be committed public citizens and leaders, ready to actively participate in building stronger communities and societies. Tisch College does this by identifying and supporting Tufts students, faculty, staff and alumni, and community partners who develop creative, effective approaches to active citizenship at Tufts, in Tufts host communities, and in communities around the world.
