Tufts has a long history of collaboration with other institutes of higher education as well as other organizations. Tufts was one of the founding members of the NECSC (Northeast College Sustainability Coordinators). The Office of Sustainability and its predecessors (the Tufts Climate Initiative and Tufts CLEAN! amongst others) has hosted many conferences over the past 20 years, from the Massachusetts Climate Action Networks first conference to Sustainable Dining conferences to a regional Eco-Rep conference this past fall (see http://sustainability.tufts.edu/?pid=136). In addition many publications related to sustainability on campuses have come out of Tufts, both from faculty as well as staff.
