Viewing technology in the context of work, scholarship and campus life, Tufts Technology Services (TTS) is a university-wide service organization committed to delivering technology services that support Tufts’ mission of teaching, learning, research, and service. Understanding that IT enables innovation, TTS prioritizes holistic, human-centered design strategies to create timely and intuitive services, applications and tools that differentiate the Tufts experience.
Across our diverse and creative teams, we engage and focus our collective talent to strengthen Tufts’ strategic IT capabilities. To keep pace with our community’s emerging needs, we continue to evolve our competencies across four main families of practice, including Planning and Design, Service Delivery and Operations, Data Strategy, and Academic Technology.
Thinking and acting strategically with technology occurs through strong partnerships and an engaged community. Additionally, for technologies to take on integral meaning to our work, we also need reliable and consistent support in using them. With staff across all of Tufts’ campuses, as well as a 24x7 IT Service Desk, we collaborate with schools and divisions to meet the demands of a global, mobile community and to enable the broadest possible access.

Diversity and Inclusion
Aligning with Tufts strategic theme of Engaging and Celebrating Commonalities and Differences, TTS strives to create and maintain a diverse and inclusive work environment as well as ensuring our technology offerings support the diverse needs of the community.
Diversity is the multiplicity of our perspectives and personal identities that compose TTS as an organization and as a community, including: Race, color, nationality, ethnicity, culture, language, age, religion, mental and physical ability, cognitive style, level of education, work experience, socioeconomic status, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and/or expression, military or veteran status, and immigration status
Inclusion is our affirmation of the value of each person’s identity, experience and capabilities as part of a whole. Inclusion leverages and incorporates a range of personal identities and unique backgrounds to enhance our workplace and services.
