Tufts Institute of the Environment, Tufts University
Service Provider DescriptionTIE was created in 1998 in response to a need that developed out of the rich
history of earlier environmental programs and activity at Tufts University.
Historically, Tufts has been a leader in articulating and demonstrating the
responsibility of universities to address environmental problems. Tufts was the
birthplace of University Leaders for a Sustainable Future and lead signatory in
1990 on the Talloires Declaration which articulated the responsibility of
universities to work on environmental problems. The undergraduate program in
Environmental Studies, established in 1984, was one of the first in the
country. For over three decades, Tufts has been involved in environmental
research, education, training, and service.
