Welcome to Conference and Event Services!

Tufts Conference and Event Services is a division of the university; set up over 35 years ago to be responsible for coordinating summer activities and academic programs, as well as organizing and running special events for the university.  During the summer months, Tufts Conference and Event Services transforms the campus into an international conference center. For 14 weeks, starting with Commencement, people from all over the world with special interests and academic objectives spend anywhere from two days to six weeks studying everything from English as a Second Language to Global Leadership and International Relations. Tufts Conference and Event Services works with these groups in order to make sure that all their conference needs are met.

During the summer, Tufts Conference and Event Services employs over 35 employees to help meet the needs of our summer programs and conferences. We maintain professionalism and respect at all times when working with clients while also providing meaningful and valuable experiences for our employees. Even though we hire the majority of our staff for our summer operations, we also call upon former employees to assist with events during the semesters following their summer of employment. During the fall and spring semesters, we often hire 1-2 students, preferably former summer employees, to assist us with administrative tasks, event planning, summer operation prep, and more! If you are interested in working with us during the semester then email us at conferences@tufts.edu with your inquiry.
