The mission of the Office of Alumni Engagement is to inspire lifelong engagement with the Tufts Community. Through connections, shared experiences, and opportunities to give back, we empower Alumni to make an impact on each other and the University. This is accomplished through extensive programming initiatives in Boston, throughout the United States and around the world catering to a variety of alumni needs and interests. OAR is the key point of contact for all alumni of the University. In conjunction with the Alumni Association, the Office of Alumni Engagement plans events and programs including Alumni Weekend, Homecoming, Reunions, Lifelong Learning & Travel Learn, Career Networking, Alumni Awards, Senior Awards and Alumni Council meetings, as well as programming for current students of the University, soon to be alumni.
In consort with the Director, develop and carry out programming that engages Tufts alumni, parents and friends with the intellectual life of the University. This is done by highlighting research and providing access to faculty via webinars, in person events (both on and off campus) and through the Travel-Learn program. Contribute to planning and execution of all Lifelong Learning programing and partner with internal constituencies to develop, engage and cultivate broadly across the whole alumni constituency (e.g. professional schools, age ranges, ethnic and cultural groups).
