Strengthening Democracy

Tufts is marshalling resources to articulate the values of democracy through coursework, scholarship, and opportunities for civic and community engagement. Through such activity, Tufts endorses a larger vision for universities as institutions who do not sit on the sidelines, but who rather are engaged with protecting and advancing human freedom, dignity, and respect.

  • The Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life received the Higher Education Civic Engagement Award from The Washington Center and the New York Life Foundation--one of only five institutions chosen from nearly 100 nominations.
