Tufts Launches Historic Fund-Raising Campaign
University Officially Kicks Off $1.2 Billion Campaign Aimed at Strengthening Key Priorities and Areas of Focus
Members of the Tufts community are always looking to challenge, and be challenged by, the world around them, whether it involves researchers changing the way we think about our health, students devoting their spare time to working in the community or graduates making waves in halls of power around the world.
On Nov. 3, we officially embarked on a $1.2 billion campaign entitled Beyond Boundaries. The name of this campaign reflects our global perspective, cross-discipline collaboration and our community outreach.
In recent months, Tufts has made great strides in its commitments to active citizenship, internationalism, humanities and the liberal arts, the advancement of interdisciplinary study and the education of tomorrow's leaders. The generosity of the Tufts community has played a large part in this continued growth, yielding several notable accomplishments including the establishment of the Omidyar-Tufts Microfinance Fund; the naming of the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service; the construction of the environmentally-friendly Sophia Gordon Hall dormitory; the expansion of dental services to special needs populations; the funding of a new international management degree program at The Fletcher School; and more.
Below, you can learn more about some of these accomplishments. But these are just a few of the compelling stories being written at Tufts every day. You can help us write more, as we continue to push beyond boundaries.
