Welcome!

The Office of Community Relations is a department of Tufts’ University Relations division. Community Relations creates the bridge between Tufts and its host communities of Medford, Somerville and Chinatown. Please subscribe to our Neighborhood Newsflash, and e-newsletter to stay up to date on what is happening at Tufts.

What We Do at Tufts

  • Advise university departments about a wide range of opportunities and connections in our host communities and advise them on maintaining these relationships.
  • Work with student organizations on community service and volunteer opportunities.
  • Manage the logistics of the annual Tufts Community Appeal campaign and the Tufts Neighborhood Service Fund grant opportunity.

What We Do in the Community

  • Build and maintain relationships with our neighbors.
  • Make university resources available to the community.
  • Connect Tufts programs to specific community needs.
  • Present Tufts’ annual Community Day – a celebration of our partnerships with Medford and Somerville.
  • Manage the Tufts Neighbors Page – a collection of lectures, discussions, concerts, art exhibits, performances, and other Tufts campus events that are open to our neighbors. Visit the site often!
