Expand Filter List Collapse Filter List

The StAAR (Student Accessibility and Academic Resource) Center (formally Student Accessibility Services and the Academic Resource Center) is remaining open virtually. While we have a point of contact in our offices in Dowling Hall, all StAAR Center appointments, including students with disabilities registering for accommodations, tutoring sessions, and study groups are being offered remotely. Our workshops are available virtually and are recorded and posted on our website for reference later on.

The StAAR Center values the individuality of each student, and offers a number of different types of free programs to help students reach their full potential while at Tufts. Specific programs include:

How will course reserves work in the libraries?

Expand Filter List Collapse Filter List

Tisch, Lilly, and SMFA Libraries course reserves will be online only. Please use the Canvas Reading List Tool or email tischres@tufts.edu to submit requests.

Tisch is piloting a service to scan limited amounts of required reading for your Canvas course site while the COVID-19 crisis limits access to print reserves. This service is limited to required reading materials that are not available in any other format. If the Library can purchase an ebook license for under $300 we will do so.

If you would like assistance finding alternative readings, including open educational resources, please contact your liaison librarian. Where alternatives are not possible, nor licensed digital copies available for libraries, instructors can request Tisch Library scan parts of the book, with some provisos relying on our interpretation of fair use. More information can be found here.

Please leave as much time as possible for us to process your requests. Staff health and safety considerations for building access and handling books require extra safety protocols at each stage, so we expect things to move a little slower than normal. Thank you for your patience.

What technology will my classrooms have? Where can I find this information for course planning?

Expand Filter List Collapse Filter List

All in-person classes will be supplied with technologies to enable synchronous multi-modality instruction. We have installed cameras and microphones in many of the classrooms. About 80 classrooms have fixed installations, and we have portable video conferencing units for other classrooms. TTS has outlined directions for how to use these technologies, and training is available. Details can be found at: https://sites.tufts.edu/teaching/multi-modality-classrooms/.

TTS and CELT also offer faculty teaching guidance for tools and best practices for synchronous multi-modality instruction that will help to create an equitable and inclusive experience for all students. Learn more at: https://sites.tufts.edu/teaching/.
