Statement Regarding Higher Education Equity

April 7, 2015

Today, Tufts is pleased to join with Tufts United for Immigrant Justice in supporting higher education equity by announcing that we will now consider all undocumented students as domestic applicants for undergraduate admissions. Both DACA and undocumented students deserve an opportunity for higher education in our country. Our announcement today is in keeping with Tufts’ long-held values of inclusion and access—values that go back to our founding—and is consistent with our past support for the Dream Act. We welcome these applicants and the value that they will add to our undergraduate student body.
