The Board of Trustees and Tufts University mourn the passing of Dr. John DiBiaggio.
Tufts President Anthony Monaco writes,
“It is with great sadness that I write to share news of the passing on February 1 of John DiBiaggio, Tufts’ eleventh president. Dr. DiBiaggio’s service as President of Tufts from 1992 until 2001 capped a remarkable career as a leader in American higher education, and has had an enduring impact on the university. He enhanced the physical fabric of our campuses, secured the financial resources needed to support innovative academic programs, and gave new institutional form to Tufts’ longstanding commitment to public service and civic life.”
