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 Services (confidential).

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.

In Solidarity,

Hope Freeman
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.
