A Message to the Tufts Community
Dear Students -
This past weekend, the University received multiple reports of students being verbally and /or physically assaulted at
an on-campus event or at off-campus student gatherings. These reports include allegations of discriminatory conduct
and/or sex or gender-based harassment, both homophobic and transphobic. This kind of
misbehavior has absolutely no place on our campus. It violates our policies and community values at Tufts.
The University is currently investigating the incidents and providing support and resources to any students who
may be affected. I want to encourage community members with information about these incidents to file a report
with one of the following offices:
If you do not feel comfortable filing a report or need support reporting, please let me know. In addition to the
offices above, you may report concerns or misconduct to any staff member in the Division of Student Life, including
staff here at the LGBT Center.
While these incidents remain under investigation, I want to encourage any student who has been impacted to seek resources
and support when you are ready. Please do not hesitate to be in contact with staff members in the LGBT Center,
CARE Office (confidential),
Dean of Student Affairs Office, University Chaplaincy
(confidential), and/or Counseling and Mental Health
I will be available during open block on Wednesdays from 12 - 1:30 p.m. If you would like to speak in person, but cannot
come in during open block, please contact me directly: Hope.Freeman@tufts.edu.
The LGBT Center is located on the Medford/Somerville Campus in Bolles House on the 2nd floor.
Director, LGBT Center
Founded in 1992, the LGBT Center offers a space for all students,
faculty, and staff to explore their unique relationship to gender
and sexuality through personal, activist, or academic lenses. The
Center provides programming, advising, and educational resources and
aims to improve the experience of gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, and
transgender people at Tufts, as well as to provide campus-wide
education about sexuality, gender, and the effects of heterosexism,
cissupremacy, queerphobia, and other forms of dehumanization.
