Emily Quigley, Assistant Director of Campus Life – Outdoor Education
My role is to provide guidance, oversight, and support to the outdoor programs at Tufts: the Tufts Wilderness Orientation, Tufts Mountain Club, and the Tufts Loj. I believe that outdoor programs provide co-constructed spaces for students to exist in community together, practicing trust, care, and responsibility in relation to each other while learning valuable tools of leadership and risk management. Outdoor experiences allow students to be better leaders, community-builders, and learners back on campus and in the world. I work with TWO and TMC to build safe, welcoming environments that support students throughout their time at Tufts.
Before coming to Tufts, I directed Harvard College’s First-Year Outdoor Program, maintaining AEE-accreditation and industry-standard practices of risk management for a 500-person program, and coordinated operations for the National Outdoor Leadership School’s (NOLS) custom education team, developing and implementing individualized courses for specific student groups across the country. I hold a Bachelor’s degree from Tufts, a Master’s degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and am Wilderness First Responder certified. These experiences help me to bring both professional expertise and personal care into working with students in TWO and TMC.
