The Tufts University Center for Children was created in July 1999, following two years of planning that involved faculty workshops and a steering committee process led by then Vice Provost June Aprille. The Center was sponsored by the Provost's office, and was founded by Donald Wertlieb; Howard Spivak served as its director starting in 2002. Its mission was to create and facilitate "interdisciplinary research, service, education, training and social education advancing the well-being of children, their families, and their communities." The Center also coordinated communication between departments by way of an electronic mailing list of faculty, staff, and community partners. Exact dates of the Center's termination are unclear, but it appears to have become defunct between 2008 and 2011.
