Committees

The AS&E GSC has formed internal committees and external committees on the university-wide committees. Please contact gsc@tufts.edu if you are interested in joining them.

Internal Committees

Academic and Professional Development Committee
The Academic and Professional Development Committee is responsible for finding and providing opportunities for graduate students to better themselves academically and professionally. The two major events hosted by this committee are the 3-Minute Thesis Competition (Fall semester) and the Graduate Student Research Symposium (Spring semester).

Community Outreach Committee
The Community Outreach Committee facilitates community engagement and volunteer opportunities for graduate students. Involvement can range from spending a morning preparing food for homebound citizens to participating in reoccurring home building events with Habitat for Humanity Greater Boston.

International Student Committee
The International Student Committee was formed to host events specifically tailored to international students’ concerns. This committee serves as a platform and a voice for the international graduate student body to vocalize their needs and provide them with opportunities to succeed. Workshops and events are utilized to foster a welcoming community and connect international students to needed resources.

Social Life Committee
The Social Life Committee puts together events for graduate students both on and off campus including apple picking in the fall and pub nights throughout the year. These events are intended to foster and grow the graduate student community at Tufts through relaxed social events.

Student Life Committee
The Student Life Committee is responsible for listening to the concerns and suggestions of the graduate student community to improve the Tufts graduate experience.  Student Life events include What’s the Tea (rebrand of the Vent Event), Dean’s Coffee Hours and other events that improve graduate student wellbeing.
