About TN

Our Mission:

The Talloires Network is an international association of institutions committed to strengthening the civic roles and social responsibilities of higher education. We work together to implement the recommendations of the Talloires Declaration and build a global movement of engaged universities.

Our Vision:

We believe that higher education institutions do not exist in isolation from society, nor from the communities in which they are located. The Talloires Network envisions universities around the world as a vibrant and dynamic force in their societies, incorporating civic engagement and community service into their research and teaching mission.


The Network is guided by an elected Steering Committee of 13 members from around the world (current membership comes from 11 countries on 6 continents).  Our secretariat is based at Tufts University.
