Office of Equal Opportunity

Tufts' Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) is guided by a commitment to ensuring equal opportunity is provided for all members of the Tufts community. We further this work by ensuring that the University maintains compliance with all federal, state, and local laws pertaining to affirmative action, anti-discrimination, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. OEO serves the University to resolve complaints of discrimination and harassment and to set forth University policies and guidelines that pertain to these areas.

Visit the Office of Equal Opportunity page for more information.

Tufts Threat Assessment and Management

Tufts is committed to maintaining a safe environment where all students, faculty, and staff can learn, work, and live without threat of violence. That is why President Monaco created TTAM, a group that allows members of the community to safely and confidentially report threats of violence. TTAM also responds to any threats by partnering with other health and safety organizations on campus. Recognizing and reporting early signs of a potentially dangerous situation are crucial to preventing violence and enhance the university’s ability to provide assistance to community members who may be in distress. Read more.
