The Division of Student Diversity and Inclusion
The Division of Student Diversity and Inclusion works collectively and independently to develop knowledge of and appreciation for diversity at Tufts. All students are welcome at each center. The Centers sponsor many activities, including field trips, lectures, barbeques, and other events throughout the year. For more information, please visit their websites:

The LGBT Center offers a space for all students, faculty, and staff to explore their unique relationship to gender and sexuality through personal, activist, or academic lenses, as well as programming, advising, and educational resources.
The I-Center staff works to raise intercultural awareness, to increase the knowledge of immigration laws affecting the Tufts international community, and to advocate for a campus climate that respects cultural differences.
The Asian American Center is a resource for the university and the Asian/Asian American communities and fosters a supportive environment for the academic and personal development of students through its year-round programs and services.
