Take the time you need.
The work we do together is meaningful, but so is the time we take for ourselves. Whether you want to enjoy a dream vacation, unplug for the holidays, bond with a new child, or care for a family member, you can count on having the paid time off you need to relax, restore, renew, and recover.

Family comes first.
Every life stage comes with its own demands, but you’ll find what you need at Tufts to support you and your family along the way. Childcare resources, parent groups, elder and caregiving support, transportation offerings, and on-site summer programming for kids are just a few of the reasons that Forbes ranked Tufts one of the Top 10 Massachusetts Employers in 2021.
