Green Initiative

Over the last decade, Tufts University has demonstrated a clear commitment to sustainability and the environment. The university was named one of the top 25 greenest schools in the 2009 Kaplan College Guide, earned a 94 on a scale of 60 to 99 in the Princeton Review’s “Green Rating” guide, and was listed among the top 10 schools “that get it” when it comes to green living in the 2009 September/October issue of Sierra Magazine.

The dental school is also doing its part to uphold this commitment. Please browse this site to learn more about the dental school’s approach to sustainability and what you can do to help.
