Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life

Affiliated Student Organizations

Tufts students

Tisch College plays an important role promoting and facilitating community service, political participation, and other forms of civic engagement at Tufts University. Much of that work is carried out by students, both individually and, especially, through myriad student organizations on all Tufts campuses that advance Jumbos’ participation in civic life.

We are proud to have an especially close relationship with several of these student groups which we consider Tisch College affiliated organizations, and to which we offer various forms of support.

Tufts CIVIC

Cooperation and Innovation in Citizenship (CIVIC) works to engage undergraduate students with each other in conversations about policy, current events, and the fundamental principles that drive American democracy. Since its founding at Tufts University in 2015, CIVIC has worked to ensure that it remains a safe but challenging environment in which students must consider their opinions and articulate their thoughts to a wider audience. As Tufts’ only multi-partisan community, CIVIC has become an outlet for many students to engage in weekly political discussions, learn civic-action skills, and develop friendships with those across the political spectrum.

Generation Citizen – Tufts Chapter

Generation Citizen (GC) works to ensure that every student in the U.S. receives an effective action civics education. We do this by directly engaging schools in action civics while simultaneously building the demand for the concept across the country. Semester-long programs are led by a partnership between trained college-student volunteers and secondary school teachers. Students focus on issues and topics that are relevant to their lives and employ critical-thinking and strategic decision-making skills to effect positive change in their communities. Learn more
