Student Life and Resources


Cummings Support Center

The mission of the Cummings Support Center (CSC) is to create a positive environment to nurture and sustain the overall well-being of the Cummings School community. The CSC aims to assist students throughout their time at the Cummings School, including periods of critical transition and crisis, by providing support, guidance, and intervention (when necessary). Students are supported through the Student Academic Support Service, the Career Counseling Service, and Cummings Behavioral Health Service.

Commitment to Diversity

The Tufts University Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) ensures that the university’s commitment and goals toward equal opportunity are integral components of Tufts’ policies.


We further this mission by ensuring that Cummings School maintains compliance with all federal, state, and local laws pertaining to anti-discrimination, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Title IX, through complaint resolution, programming, and outreach


Student Affairs Office

The Student Affairs Office (SAO) at Cummings School supports our students in their endeavors on campus. We seek to serve the needs of the whole student by integrating resources throughout the school and community. We care about our students’ experience at Cummings School and work to create an environment conducive to success.

In collaboration with the Office of Academic Affairs, the Student Affairs Office provides the guidance, resources, and assistance you need to succeed.

Location, Location, Location

Our students enjoy the best of both worlds: the proximity to Worcester and Boston and the quiet beauty of rural New England. Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine is located on the Grafton campus of Tufts University, just thirty-fives miles west of Boston and eight miles southeast of Worcester, both easily accessible via the Grafton station of the commuter rail.

A student's experience while at school extends beyond the classroom and the lab. Our students thrive in an environment conducive to growth and learning, within a campus community that supports the whole student.
