How Tufts changes will depend on the candidates you elect to the Board of Trustees and to the Alumni Council. Tufts wants to hear from you!
Trustees control budgets, academic affairs, tuition, faculty, and facilities for every Tufts undergraduate and graduate school. The Alumni Council helps to shape everything from career services to reunions to programs in your area. In other words, the people elected to these two governing bodies will impact all aspects of the Tufts experience.
All alumni may vote for Alumni Trustee, but only school-specific alumni may vote for Alumni Council representatives from the school(s) with which they're affiliated.
