About President Monaco
Anthony P. Monaco has served as the thirteenth president of Tufts University since August 1, 2011. An accomplished leader, scientist and teacher, Dr. Monaco brings to the Tufts presidency deep-rooted commitments to academic excellence, diversity, access and inclusion, a global perspective, and a keen awareness of the power of higher education to impact individuals and society.
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. Major initiatives of Dr. Monaco’s tenure have included the 2016 acquisition of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and he has personally led university-wide initiatives on diversity and inclusion, sexual misconduct prevention, student mental health, and sustainable operations. Each of these efforts builds on a comprehensive assessment of how Tufts could best put its values and institutional commitments into practice.
A distinguished geneticist, Dr. Monaco’s doctoral research led to a landmark discovery: the gene responsible for X-linked Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies. Before coming to Tufts, he spent two decades as a faculty member and senior academic leader at the University of Oxford.
