The process to join is simple and free of charge. We ask that you contact the Talloires Network Secretariat and give a brief overview of your civic engagement activities, with links to pages about your civic engagement work on your institution’s website.

Once you have been approved to join, you will need to provide a letter of commitment signed by the president, vice-chancellor, or rector. The letter should be addressed to President Anthony Monaco of Tufts University, Chair of the Talloires Network Steering Committee. The letter should be scanned and emailed to the Talloires Network Secretariat.

The membership is an umbrella membership, which means that all staff, faculty and students can then participate in the network and take advantage of any opportunities that arise.

In order to make the most of your membership, we ask that you assign a liaison to work with us on promoting your institution’s civic engagement and to connect you with other members to work on collaborative projects.
