Priorities

The Empower campaign is about people empowering people. The goal is to raise $500 million in philanthropy for three strategic priorities:

Student Support and Financial Aid.

Northeastern's robust financial aid programs and broad academic, athletic, and cultural offerings help attract a diverse and talented student body. You can help bring the most deserving students to campus—and support our signature global co-op, study-abroad, service-learning, student-research, athletics, and campus-life enrichment programs.

Faculty Advancement and Expansion.

A global research university, Northeastern must recruit, retain and support a world-class faculty. Gifts to endow chairs and professorships will fuel high-impact, use-inspired research in perpetuity, in emerging fields from network science to the digital humanities.

Innovation in Education and Research.

Northeastern’s legacy of creativity and invention began with co-op. Today innovation continues through pioneering efforts in online learning and research. With your support, the university will continue to take bold, calculated risks—the kind that revolutionize learning and opens new lines of inquiry.
