  • The Inclusive City: 2nd Annual Fletcher-MasterCard Inclusion Forum

    May 1, 2014

    In a world that is for the first time predominantly urban and rapidly becoming more so, the challenges and opportunities experienced in cities around the world are unprecedented. Massive urbanization brings enormous challenges to governments and the market alike. The ranks of urban poor have swelled, generating acute demand for accessible and affordable goods, infrastructure, and services. The inadequate capacities of governments to respond to this trend have created opportunities for the private sector to provide essential services, typically under the purview of the public sector.

    How can we develop and plan cities so that they respond to the unique needs of the urban poor while ensuring that opportunities are open to people of all socioeconomic strata? What is the state of urban experience, particularly for the poor?

    In what ways are urban trends across emerging and frontier countries shared with developed nations? How can we use new technologies and tools to create innovative urban practices?
    Structured in these large contexts, The Fletcher School at Tufts University and The MasterCard Center for Inclusive Growth are hosting The Inclusive City Forum, May 1 and 2, 2014.

    This Forum will welcome public and private practitioners, investors, academics, and students, along with regulators from 14 countries to debate these core questions and explore real solutions.

  • Research Day on Data Science

This objective of the day is to raise awareness of data science within the university community and to highlight current resources and research in this emerging interdisciplinary field. Data Science aims to make sense of the enormous amounts of data currently being created by modern technologies, such as sequencing techniques, electronic medical records, and social media outlets.

    Please join us for Research Day on Friday, May 2, 2014 in Distler Performance Hall in the Granoff Music Center on the Medford/Somerville campus.

  • Baccalaureate Service

    May 17, 2014, 3pm EDT

    The traditional baccalaureate service, which honors graduating seniors at Tufts, began in 1865. “Baccalaureate” technically means a sermon to a graduating class, and for most of Tufts’ history, the inspirational message has been delivered by the university president. The address is the president’s final opportunity to exhort and enlighten members of the senior class before they receive their bachelor’s degrees and leave the campus as alumni/ae. In recent years, the baccalaureate has been an interfaith service, with all university chaplains organizing and participating in the service. Seniors participate in a processional in caps and gowns. Family members are invited to attend. The winner of the Wendell Phillips Award will speak, and members of the senior Baccalaureate Committee and the chaplains will present readings and prayers. There are also hymns and musical offerings by soloists and instrumentalists.

    Seniors should align for the processional for the Baccalaureate Service at 2:30 p.m. at the Gantcher Family Sports and Convocation Center.
