It’s Alumni Election season!

February 21 to April 13, 2020

How Tufts changes will depend on the candidates you elect to the Board of Trustees and the Alumni Council. Tufts needs your vote today. 

Trustees control budgets, academic affairs, tuition, faculty, and facilities for every Tufts undergraduate and graduate school. The Alumni Council influences everything from career services to reunions to programs in your area. In other words, the people elected to these two governing bodies will impact every aspect of the Tufts experience.

Check your email for a reminder to vote! You can also vote using the links on this website. 

All alumni may vote for Alumni Trustee, but only school-specific alumni may vote for Alumni Council candidates from the school(s) from which they've graduated.

Alumni Trustees

The Tufts University Board of Trustees has 40 members, of whom 10 are elected by alumni. The Board of Trustees is the managing authority of the university and makes critical decisions on budgets, academic affairs, tuition, faculty, and buildings and services impacting all three campuses and all seven schools.

Alumni Council Members

All Tufts graduates are members of the Tufts University Alumni Association, which is led by the Alumni Council. They organize a number of programs to benefit the more than 100,000 Tufts alumni, including career services, reunions, lifelong learning, regional activities, alumni awards, and the nomination of candidates for the university’s Board of Trustees and the Alumni Council itself.
