Universities that are interested in joining the Talloires Network should contact Robert Hollister, Talloires Network Director, at robert.hollister@tufts.edu, to provide an overview of your civic engagement activities, a description of the commitments or policies your university has regarding community engagement, and links to websites, reports or publications about your civic engagement work. This will help us confirm that you are committed to engaging with your community.

Once we have received and reviewed this information, we will notify you if you have been accepted to join and guide you through the membership process.
