Mission Statement

The primary goal of The Friedman Sprout is to act as an educational tool for its writers.  As such, we accept submissions from all Friedman students, whether writing talents lie in news articles, research articles, or opinion pieces.  We will encourage students to develop research and writing skills through their contributions and editing of the newspaper.  We will consider a wide range of topics pertinent to the various aspects of food policy, agriculture, nutrition, and health.

A secondary goal of the Friedman Sprout is to serve as a communication link between alumni, first-year students, second-year students, prospective students, and the larger Tufts community.


The Friedman Sprout is a student-run newspaper.  The views expressed in this paper are the views of the students who write them and are not necessarily the views of Tufts University or the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, its faculty, staff, administrators, or donors.
