The Tufts Parents Program
The Tufts Parents Program serves as a bridge between families and their students at the university. We are your resource at Tufts, often the first line of contact for many parents inquiring about anything from academic issues to health concerns. The Parents Program also raises support from parents to enhance and maintain an academic level of excellence for all Tufts undergraduates.
Each year, parents contribute over $2 million to support the Parents Fund, part of the Tufts Fund for Arts and Sciences, which provides critical support for priorities such as faculty recruitment and retention, financial aid, development, innovative programs, and enhanced research facilities. Parents also support specific initiatives such as endowment and building projects. Please review the methods and ways to give or call the Parents Program at 617-627-3798 for more information.
Highlights of campus life are sent via email monthly, as well as important announcements from the Office of the President and other university offices. Please make sure we have your current email address by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
