2020 Commencement

Congratulations, Class of 2020! We are exceedingly proud of all graduating Tufts students, and especially of our Tisch Scholars, Tisch Summer Fellows, Tufts 1+4 Fellows, and all Jumbos who engaged in civic life through our programs.

It's especially meaningful for us to celebrate this Tufts class, which is graduating on Tisch College's 20th anniversary! Thanks to every graduating student who has embodied our values and advanced our work on campus, in our communities, and around the world.

Honoring the Class of 2020

On Sunday, May 17, Tufts University held a virtual degree conferral ceremony for the Class of 2020—you can watch it below. You can aso explore this special wall of videos congratulating the 2020 graduates. Make sure you select Tisch College from the dropdown menu!


Congratulations to Our Graduating Tufts 1+4 Fellows!

Five years ago, Tisch College launched the Tufts 1+4 Bridge Year Program, an innovative "gap year" that allowed incoming students to spend a year of community service, language learning, and cultural immersion abroad before starting their studies on campus. This year, that first group of 1+4 Fellows completed a journey that began in Brazil, Spain, or Nicaragua when they graduated from Tufts. We're so proud of these Jumbos who embarked on a unique educational experience and we're excited about what they'll do next!


21 Students Honored with Tufts Presidential Awards

We're proud of all of the undergraduate and graduate/professional school students who received the 2020 Presidential Award for Civic Life, Tufts University's highest honor for civic engagement. Read more about these extraordinary young leaders here and check out the video below!


Celebrating our Honos Civicus Inductees

Each year, Tisch College inducts graduating students from every Tufts school into Honos Civicus, our honor society for excellence in academics and civic engagement.
