A brief description of the diversity office:

In 1998, following a recommendation of the December 1997 Task Force on Race Report, the AS&E Office of Diversity Education and Development (aka the Diversity Office) was created. Its purpose is to work collaboratively with faculty, staff, and students to augment the diverse community that already exists at Tufts. This office is responsible for developing, implementing, and assessing a range of programs for faculty, staff, and students, and for collaborating with offices, departments, and programs in the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering and other parts of the University, as appropriate, to promote diversity. Diversity is a term that encompasses differences among people with respect to race, culture, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, social class, religious belief, disability status, and age.

The Office provides workshops and other educational sessions, is a resource for consultations, develops a variety of resource materials, and helps to plan some diversity-related events on campus.
