A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty :

Tufts University is a member of the National GEM Consortium for Graduate Degrees for Minorities in Engineering and Science. For more information, see http://gradstudy.tufts.edu/admissions/gemfellowships.htm.

Tufts Biology Department participates in the NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) and Undergraduate Research Mentoring (URM). This is a summer research program that seeks to increase students' proficiency in biological research and collaborative skills, to educate and inspire students toward future research careers, and to develop students' ability to effectively communicate scientific results. The Department especially encourages applications from women and minorities, as well as students from community colleges and other institutions that do not traditionally offer research opportunities.

The Tufts Center for STEM Diversity offers support programs for graduate programs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. For more information, see http://stemdiversity.tufts.edu/?pid=26&c=20.
