Hello Jumbos,
We're exploring the Student Affairs Office this week!

Meet Dean of Students Camille Lizarríbar

I am delighted to welcome you to our Tufts community, and to share with you the many resources offered by or in partnership with the Student Affairs Office. To our first-year students, congratulations on the many achievements that have brought you to the start of your undergraduate career! And to our transfer students, we celebrate your accomplishments and your decision to bring your talents to Tufts!
The experiences and perspectives you bring with you to Tufts will enrich, expand, and shape our conversations and activities. I encourage you to engage. Keep an open mind and a generous heart. Embrace living a little bit out of your comfort zone. Get to know as many of your classmates and peers as you can. Help us build a community that is both joyful and purposeful. This initial blueprint will help you make the most out of your first semester on campus. I look forward to getting to know you and supporting you through what I hope will be one of the most transformative, creative, and stimulating times in your life. Welcome to Tufts!
Yours in happy anticipation,
Camille Lizarríbar, JD, PhD
Dean of Students and Chief Student Affairs Officer for AS&E

Student Outreach and Support

When you come to Tufts, you join a community of people who care about you. We are here to support each other's success and personal development. When life happens, we are here to help. When you experience unexpected challenges—family concerns, hospitalizations, housing or food insecurity, or any other challenges that are important to youget in touch with the Student Outreach and Support team.

Student Code of Conduct

Because we are a community that cares about each other, the university has established policies that apply to all students. Take time this summer to read the Student Code of Conduct and contact the Office of Community Standards if you have questions about our policies or what is expected of you as a student at Tufts.

Supporting Your Engagement

Tufts has many co-curricular resources, supports, and opportunities for students. The Student Affairs Office is here to help you get the most out of your Tufts experience holistically. If you need something, or if have a question and you aren't sure where to start, the Student Affairs Office should be your first stop.
The Student Affairs Office works closely with every other Student Life department:
They also partner with several offices outside of Student Life:
Since Student Affairs partners with almost everyone, they can help you connect with the right opportunity or resource  even if you don't know exactly what you need.
