Success in the Empower campaign will come from the support of thousands of people and organizations — alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff, students, foundations, corporations, and other generous contributors. Your involvement will enable students and faculty to master and create knowledge that improves lives. The stories here chronicle philanthropy’s impact on the university, its former and students, and, ultimately, the world.
Behind every Northeastern graduate is a story of empowerment — often, a story about a formative personal or mentoring relationship. Did someone special play a pivotal role in your academic or career success? A faculty member or adviser? Co-op supervisor? Athletics coach? Classmate?
