Community Service

Greater Boston & Charles River

Community service is a core value of GSBS and Tufts University.  The Graduate Student Council (GSC) has taken a leadership role in mounting a wide variety projects that touch our neighborhood and reach across the world. Please watch for calls for volunteers and anyone who is interested in volunteering or organizing a new volunteer opportunity should contact the Outreach committee members.


Science Fair Mentor

GSBS students help Boston Latin School students select a good science project, advise them as they conduct the experiments and analyze the data, and put together their presentations for Science Fair.

Rosie’s Place

The GSC has sponsored regular trips to this home for poor and homeless women, located just down the street from the GSBS campus.  Volunteers helped to make and serve a delicious meal for women in need on their first visit, and the decision to make regular visits soon followed.
