Meet Dean of Student Affairs, Camille Lizarríbar
I am delighted to welcome you to Tufts and to introduce you to the many resources offered by or in partnership with the Student Affairs Office. 
If you are a first-year student, congratulations on the many achievements that have brought you to the start of your undergraduate career. If you are a transfer student, we celebrate your previous collegiate accomplishments and your decision to bring your talents to Tufts.
Let me begin by thanking you for sharing your intentions for the Fall semester this past week. Our team has been hard at work to prepare for the new academic year that will be, by necessity, different than any that has come before.
Whether you are a first-year or a transfer student, you and I will always share a common bond because this will also be my very first year at Tufts, having just arrived from serving in a similar role at Yale University. I look forward to getting to know you and supporting you through what will undoubtedly be one the most transformative, creative, and stimulating times in your life.
Welcome to Tufts!

With my best wishes,
Camille Lizarríbar, JD, PhD
Dean of Student Affairs and Chief Student Affairs Officer
