Congratulations to our graduates and award winners!
med ed entrance

I want to congratulate our 21 Master’s and 7 PhD May graduates.

Prior to the COVID-19 crisis we were planning on holding our annual Awards and Graduation Reception this Friday afternoon, before the Commencement Ceremony on Sunday. While we can’t hold these events at this time, we are planning for an in-person event when it is safe to do so.

However, a link to the University’s Phase 1 ceremony and a special message from Dan Jay will be posted to the GSBS home and Commencement pages on Sunday morning.

I am also pleased to announce the winners of the three GSBS school-wide awards:

This year we are pleased that two of our students were awarded 2020 Presidential Awards for Civic Life. Congratulations to Camila Barrios-Camacho (Neuroscience) and Vanessa Yanez (CMDB) for the founding and the ongoing programs of Scientists Promoting INclusive Excellence (SPINES).

Congratulations also go out to Najah Walton (Neuroscience) for being selected as one of the winners in the inaugural My Tufts Story video contest. The was an opportunity to showcase and hear the stories of students to better understand the multi-faceted and interdisciplinary nature of a Tufts education.

Congratulations to all our graduates and award winners.

Best wishes, Dan
