Tufts Environmental Literacy Institute (TELI)

The Tufts Environmental Literacy Institute, widely known as TELI, is a multi-day faculty development workshop aiming to enhance  environmental literacy, and assist participants to incorporate related themes into existing or new courses. The ultimate goal of TELI is to leverage the exposure and knowledge of Tufts students on the environment and effectively engage with the issues that will shape their generation.

Emphasis is placed on recruiting faculty participants from a various Tufts departments to promote interdisciplinary collaboration on environmental issues at the university. For the first time in May 2013, faculty members from 10 countries were selected to join the conversation on One Health, signifying the beginning of a new era for TELI and the communication of environmental issues.
