We couldn’t be more grateful to Tufts Community Union, student government body at Tufts University, for unanimously supporting the resolution in favor of Project Lever expansion on campus on Sunday night!!
The best parts:
WHEREAS in October, 2012 Tufts University Provost David Harris and President Anthony Monaco launched “Tufts: The Next 10 Years (T10)”, a university-wide strategic planning initiative and, on March 13th, 2013 presented “Prelude to the Strategic Plan” ;
WHEREAS this document details the current initiatives being pursued by Tufts University and outlines, “Perhaps above all, we will work to overcome administrative and cultural obstacles to enhance interdisciplinary and cross-school functions.” ;
WHEREAS the Fall 2012 Tufts Community Union (TCU) Senate Survey results show that 72.3 percent of students agreed or strongly agreed that, “If undergraduate research opportunities [with graduate students] were more readily available, I would be more likely to participate in undergraduate research” ;
BE IT RESOLVED that the TCU Senate supports the integration of Project Lever into the Tufts community;
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the TCU Senate recommends and encourages the administration of Tufts University to support Project Lever both institutionally and financially;
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the TCU Senate asks for the cooperation of the academic departments to facilitate integration.
Thanks, Tufts!! We are grateful for your support and excited to continue our expansion!
