Strategic Initiatives

Under President Monaco’s leadership, the university has identified strategic directions and key initiatives that will support and enhance Tufts’ longstanding commitments to innovation, collaboration, civic life and global perspectives.  The recommendations of the comprehensive T10 strategic plan approved by the Board of Trustees in November 2013 are now being implemented across the university. Tufts is also actively engaged in long-term capital planning to support needed improvements in facilities and systems that sustain teaching, research and campus life. In concert with President Monaco’s commitment to broaden access to a Tufts education and contain costs, the university has successfully implemented a series of major initiatives to use its administrative and financial resources more effectively—a project known as Tufts Effectiveness in Administrative Management (TEAM)—and continues to enhance administrative processes to support student and faculty needs.

President Monaco is also deeply committed to the wellbeing of the campus community and currently chairs university-wide councils or steering committees dedicated to supporting sustainability,  advancing diversity and inclusion, preventing  sexual misconduct, and strengthening student life and our students’ health and personal development at Tufts.  Each of these efforts builds on a comprehensive assessment of how Tufts could best put its values and institutional commitments into practice.
