Tufts University's mission embraces teaching, research and active citizenship in the United States and around the world. To further Tufts' goal to prepare leaders with a rich and textured understanding of the world in all its complexity and diversity, Provost Jamshed Bharucha launched the innovative University Seminar program in 2007.
The University Seminar:
- Anchors scholarship to civic engagement by inviting a multidisciplinary team of faculty and students to focus on issues of national or global import.
- Knits together Tufts' schools at a curricular level by promoting interdisciplinary teaching, learning, and research through faculty and student collaboration across schools. More >
- Promotes active learning by minimizing lecturing and maximizing student engagement through multi-disciplinary faculty guidance of student presentations, discussions, and writing. More >
- Utilizes web tools to disseminate the work product. More >
