Reporting Discrimination

The Mathematics Department wants to ensure the best possible learning experience for students. We expect everyone to be treated with respect.

If you have ideas on how the Mathematics Department can do better and be a more inclusive and diverse place, please contact the DEIJ coordinator, Genevieve Walsh, or the department head, Kim Ruane.

If you ever feel uncomfortable, intimidated, unsafe, or discriminated against in the Math Department or anywhere else in the University, we would like you to report it.  Here are several options.
To report concerns about discrimination, sexual misconduct, or unethical behavior, use Ethicspoint, the safe, secure, anonymous reporting system of the Tufts Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO). You can also report directly to the OEO about discrimination or sexual misconduct
If you would like to talk with Tufts officials who are experts on issues of equity, please reach out to one of the following people:

  • Undergraduate Students: Monroe France (Vice Provost of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice)
  • Graduate Students: Barbara Brizuela (Professor and Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences)
  • Everyone: Heads of the centers in the  Division of Student Diversity and Inclusion.

They will provide advice and perspective.
For general support or confidential advice, please feel free to contact the Tufts Chaplaincy or Counseling and Mental Health.
In an emergency,  please contact the Tufts Police 617-627-6911 or x66911, or the Mental Health Emergency line: 617-627-3360 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. At any other time, for mental health emergencies call the Tufts University police at 617-627-3030 (yes, that’s a different number than the other police number), and ask to be connected to the counselor-on-call line.
