Fine Arts School Will Become Part of Tufts

December 22, 2015

The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, in Boston, will become part of Tufts University, The Boston Globe reported. The buildings of the school will continue to be owned by the museum, but the educational operations -- including admissions recruitment, the 700 students and 145 faculty members -- will be managed by Tufts. The institution will be known as SMFA@Tufts. The move comes at a time when many small arts or specialized institutions are seeking affiliations with larger colleges and universities.
