Dear colleagues,

Tufts prides itself on excellence in teaching and innovative research and scholarship. Our faculty have always given us reason to rejoice, and I am delighted to invite you to seven celebrations of academic distinction across the university this spring semester.

Last year, we launched the Professorship Partnership Challenge, designed to increase the number of endowed professorships across Tufts. Thanks to the success of the Professorship Partnership Challenge and other fundraising efforts, we are excited to introduce seven inaugural professorship holders this spring.
