Community Partners

Collaborative partnerships form the foundation of Tufts University’s community programs and service initiatives. The Government and Community Relations team, along with many student leaders, faculty, and staff, work closely with local nonprofits, schools, and leaders to build strong relationships and meet community needs.

How to Become a Partner

There are many ways to partner with Tufts. Whether your nonprofit would like to use campus space, apply for a community grant, or request an event sponsorship, the Government and Community Relations team is here to help. You can promote volunteer opportunities for university students and employees through Tufts Civic Impact or the Leonard Carmichael Society and post job opportunities and internships with the Tufts Career Center.
