Support Teaching & Learning

Tufts is committed to hiring and maintaining a faculty with a strong commitment to teaching. Excellence in teaching enables Tufts students across the University to forge meaningful and memorable connections with their professors. These learning interactions are, for many, the core strength of the Tufts experience.

Tufts seeks out professors who are skilled at and devoted to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. With over 1,100 full and part-time faculty members, Tufts is able to keep the undergraduate student to faculty ratio at 7:1, and to ensure that 73 percent of the classes have 20 students or fewer.

Attracting and retaining world-class faculty is a priority for every major university. Competition for the best and brightest is intense. We can do it, but we need your help. Gifts to Tufts annual funds help support initiatives to recruit and retain leading faculty, to launch innovative academic programming, and to keep class sizes small. Please make your gift today to support excellence in teaching, or contact us to learn more ways to participate.
