"Before I came to Tufts, I worked for a community-based, nonprofit organization, designed to increase the academic achievement of urban school children. I wanted to know how community-based initiatives could be strengthened by trying to work through the government instead of against it. I came to UEP to explore some of these questions, and with the help of my professors and classmates, Iâm finally beginning to develop some answers."
