In March, the faculty-led Priority Area Working Groups, are working towards their charge of submitting proposals on up to three sub-themes, to be considered for an area of strategic focus for the University, on March 31. Each of the overarching themes and sub-themes are drawn from internal (survey, focus groups, etc.) and external sources. The priority area proposals will be discussed and evaluated by the Steering Committee in April.
Our data gathering also yielded important discoveries in the ways Tufts supports research and scholarship endeavors, including areas of strength and areas for improvement. To strengthen Tufts’ support for research and scholarship, four newly formed Cross-Cutting Working Groups will look at these areas, and make proposals for improvement over the summer:
Global Engagement and Impact
Resources, Barriers, and Facilitators to Research and Scholarship
