Global Tufts week is a week-long series of activities and events across all of Tufts’ schools and centers, designed to:

  • Showcase the breadth and depth of global engagement by faculty, students and staff in education, research and policy and civic engagement work
  • Celebrate and advance Tufts’ commitment to global engagement, international exchange and global learning
  • Promote connection and dialogue across schools and across disciplines on global issues.

The theme, Linking the Global and the Local, is intended to provide a unifying concept while showcasing a broad range of Tufts’ global engagement, both international and local, encouraging cross-school and cross-disciplinary collaboration. 


The Office of the Provost/Senior International Officer is the organizer and coordinator of Global Week. All Tufts departments, centers, institutes, units, student organizations and groups are invited to host an event during this week.

Events can include conferences, speakers, panel discussions, workshops, seminars, performances, film showings, cultural events, music, social and networking events, presentations and lectures, information sessions on programs, etc.  Events can be organized specifically for Global Week, and already planned events can be scheduled to take place during that week.

Events should be posted through the main Tufts Calendar, and will be displayed on the main Tufts website and on the Global Tufts website. Please be sure to check the box for "Global Tufts Week" when selected the event type.
