OOS Statement of Inclusion

Tufts Office of Sustainability believes in the inherent worth of all people. In line with the work of the Office of Institutional Inclusive Excellence and the university at large, we aspire to deliver on the promise that Tufts is a place where all members of our community feel a sense of belonging and are empowered to contribute in ways that celebrate the most important parts of their identity.

Tufts Office of Sustainability seeks to illuminate the way global inequity, sustainability, and community resilience intersect, and makes a concerted effort to bring new voices and perspectives into the field of sustainability. We commit to developing opportunities for diverse participation in sustainability, valuing the many experiences and perspectives each individual member brings to our community, and welcoming diverse ideas and experiences.

Acutely aware of the way structural power shapes people’s experiences, our office engages the Tufts community with institutional problem solving that models the real-world challenges posed by global inequity and climate change.  With an emphasis on just sustainability in our Annual Equity and Justice Goals, our office works to integrate equity and inclusion into our work, systems, and structures, including hiring, programming, communications, and governance.
