Some Tufts faculty comments:

  • “The final product is wonderful and I am proud to have my name associated with it.”

  • “…OCW has provided us two wonderful assets: (1) as bridge to many other campuses, scholars, and internet users around the world: and (2) the chance to work with the OCW staff whose professionalism and end-product have made our courses even better than they already were.”

  • “…I’m glad I did it and would do it again…the main reason I support it is that it takes knowledge out of the marketplace and makes it freely accessible to all…this is as it should be…”

Some user comments about Tufts OCW:

  • “…Tufts OCW impacted my learning by making available other non-traditional sources of information at my fingertips…”

  • “…I think that this is a good way to share the resources of a nonprofit institution. Tufts cares about the people of the world, and shows its social responsibility to the world through projects such as this...”

  • “…I’m a South African medical student who’s struggling with an epidemiology assignment and this information you made available helped me tremendously.”

A great university constantly expands its reach — working across traditional boundaries to grasp and meet the global community's most critical needs. This begins with sharing knowledge among colleagues, students, and self-learners between departments, among schools and finally across countries and continents.
