About This Organization

Tufts University is located across four campuses comprised of approximately 250 buildings totaling 5.5 million gross square feet of space. The Medford/Somerville campus is the home to the schools of Arts and Sciences, Engineering, and the Fletcher School of Diplomacy. The Health Sciences Campus in Boston is home the schools of Medicine, Dental Medicine, the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences, and the Friedman School of Nutrition. The School of the Museum of Fine Arts is located in the Boston Fenway and the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine is in Grafton. Campus and Capital Renewal Planning (Planning), within Tufts’ Operations Division, supports the goals of the university through the development of both near- and long-term plans that enable the strategic use of space and land. Tufts’ Planning is the principal repository for information on university buildings, land, and space: spatial data; floor plans; maps; site surveys; master plans; and planning studies.

Job Duties

The Property Information Analyst reports to the Director of Campus and Capital Renewal Planning (Planning) and works in close collaboration with the planners within the department as well as with colleagues in Operations ‚Äì Capital Programs, Real Estate, Facilities, and Finance ‚ and across the university ‚Äì Deans’ offices, Institutional Research, Tufts Technology Services, and Registrars.

Project and personnel management skills are helpful in the production of materials, often developed by student interns, and when leading planning initiatives related to spatial data. The position is the primary support staff for Tufts’ new Space Planning and Advisory Committee (SPACe), a governance entity with cross-school membership tasked with creating university policies to foster collaboration in space use, improve space utilization, and increased consistency in practice.
