The Multi-Ethnic Graduate Alliance (MEGA) was founded through the Provost's office to engage and connect graduate students from diverse backgrounds, and those interested in diversity, across all eight (8) graduate schools.
In addition to social and academic events, MEGA aids a number of strategic plans at the University, most notably diversity recruitment and outreach with the graduate schools' admissions offices. MEGA also works closely with the Leadership Alliance program at Tufts, assisting with the Summer Research Early Identification Program (SR-EIP), and participating in philanthropic endeavors such as Food Drives for the Greater Boston Foodbank. All graduate students at Tufts are eligible to join MEGA. To become involved in MEGA, email Yvette.Dalton@tufts.edu and visit MEGA on Facebook.
