University Guidelines Pertaining To Religious Observances

In constructing the academic calendar, religious holy days will not be the sole factor in determining days on which classes will be held or suspended. However, it is recommended:

  • that students be encouraged to observe their appropriate religious holy days.
  • that instructors strive to facilitate this by allowing absence from classes for such purposes, and by trying to insure that no examinations, written reports, oral reports, or other mandatory class assignments are scheduled for or due on such holy days.
  • that instructors provide ample opportunities for such students to make up work missed on such occasions without penalty.


Violence Free University Policy Statement

Tufts University is committed to maintaining an environment where individuals are safe to learn, work and live. In support of this commitment, Tufts will not tolerate violence or threats of violence anywhere on its campuses or in connection with university-sponsored programs. The university has established threat assessment and management teams to evaluate and address violence and threats of violence made towards members of the Tufts University community.


Tufts University Threat Assessment and Management (TTAM) Program

Tragic events across the country in recent years have highlighted the dangers posed by violence on college and university campuses. On October 7th, 2013, Tufts University President Anthony Monaco wrote to the university community about important, proactive efforts to ensure the continued safety and well-being of students, faculty, staff, and visitors. In support of the President’s Violence Free University policy statement, Tufts has established the Tufts Threat Assessment and Management (TTAM) program to identify, evaluate and address potentially threatening situations affecting members of the Tufts community. Recognizing and reporting early signs of a potentially dangerous situa¬≠tion are crucial to preventing violence and enhance the university’s ability to provide assistance to communi¬≠ty members who may be in distress.

We encourage all members of the university community to use this additional safety resource to learn how to recognize potential threats and the multiple ways to safely and if you so choose, to confidentially, report concerns.
