  • Create new non-degree international programs and partnerships, drawing from core Tufts academic resources.
  • Partner with appropriate Tufts faculty and departments to initiate, launch and support international programming aligned with faculty and institutional priorities.

Talloires Network

The Talloires Network is an international association of more than 350 engaged universities in 77 countries committed to strengthening the civic roles and social responsibilities of higher education. We work together to implement the recommendations of the Talloires Declaration and build a global movement of engaged universities. We believe that higher education institutions do not exist in isolation from society, nor from the communities in which they are located. The Talloires Network envisions universities around the world as a vibrant and dynamic force in their societies, incorporating civic engagement and community service into their research and teaching mission.
