In order to gain a broader perspective on a range of issues affecting Tufts University and higher education in general, Tufts President Anthony P. Monaco founded the President’s Council in 2016.  With affiliations across all schools at the university, the President’s Council includes alumni, parents and friends of diverse backgrounds and a range of regions in the U.S. and abroad.  Members of this volunteer leadership group meet twice a year to learn about activities and initiatives at Tufts and provide feedback to the president and his senior team on topics of current importance and interest.
