Membership in the Talloires Network signals an institutional commitment to the ideals of university community engagement, social service and responsibility, international collaboration and local collective action to address pressing problems.
Born at the Tufts European Center in Talloires, our network has extended its reach to every continent as the importance of a concrete social mission in higher education becomes widespread. Beginning in 2017, the Talloires Network has instituted a tiered membership dues structure to foster investment and growth in network operations.
Our Steering Committee adopted this policy with a look toward sustainability in the years ahead. Tufts University will continue to host the TN Secretariat within its Tisch College of Civic Life.
Engaged member universities commit to supporting TN programs, initiatives, and research by contributing annual dues based on their host country’s Human Development Index rating, according to the United Nations Development Program. Annual dues under this system range between $500 to $7,500 per year and are determined according to a university’s geographic location. Engaged members allow other, less well-endowed universities to participate in this crucial work, helping to lead the global movement of civic engagement in higher education.
Tier 1: $7,500 per year
Tier 2: $5,000 per year
Tier 3: $2,500 per year
Tier 4: $500 per year
