We Are Here to Help

Tufts University is committed to providing a campus environment free of sexual misconduct and sexual assault. The university takes all allegations of sexual misconduct seriously and is committed to providing information, resources and clear direction to members of the Tufts community so that, together, we can help prevent and address this conduct. The university will always respond to allegations of sexual misconduct by taking aggressive measures to stop it, prevent its recurrence and address any lingering effects it has on our community. Sexual misconduct is never acceptable and will not be tolerated. In the fall of 2013, President Anthony P. Monaco convened, and chairs, a Sexual Misconduct Prevention Task Force to address this serious issue. The Task Force, comprised of students, faculty and staff from all campuses, has issued a progress report for 2013-2014.


Tufts provides many resources to assist and support victims/survivors of sexual misconduct that you will find throughout this site. We encourage those who wish to receive confidential support services regarding sexual misconduct to seek assistance from the following resources:

Tufts also empowers victims/survivors to know they have options to address this conduct through our disciplinary process and/or through the legal system. The university affirms the right of victims/survivors to decide whether they wish to be involved in any process to address sexual misconduct. The university will take action should the conduct pose a threat to campus safety.

You will see that all pages on this site include an Exit Quickly button located in the top right corner of each page if you do not want your use of the website observed by others.
