Faculty & Standing Committees
A crucial element in ensuring that University College is fully integrated into the university as a whole, and that our activities are consistent with the mission and values of Tufts, are the 22 elected faculty members representing all the schools, who along with the Dean and Associate Dean, Provost, President, and President of the Senate, comprise the University College Faculty. The functions of the Faculty include advising the Dean on educational policy, approving and reviewing programs, overseeing the admission of students and recommending them for degrees, and advising the Provost on the appointment of the Dean. The Faculty is divided into two standing committees: the Non-Degree Programs Committee and the University-Wide Degree Committee. We are proud of this very distinguished and innovative group of colleagues, representing the wide-range of fields and research and teaching interests from across Tufts’ unique constellation of schools.
