A Boston-area private research university will open a satellite campus in South Lake Union in January, school officials announced Tuesday.
Northeastern University-Seattle will offer graduate programs in 15 areas, all related to science, technology, health care, business, education, policy and administration, according to a news release. It will be share a space at 401 Terry Ave. N. with the Institute for Systems Biology.
Northeastern University on Tuesday announced the location of its new graduate campus in the growing South Lake Union neighborhood, an innovative hub of global health, life sciences and technology companies and institutions that complements the graduate degrees offered by the university.
Wednesday night, Senior Vice President of Enrollment Marketing and Student Affairs Dr. Philly Mantella, Director of Co-op Services Maria Stein, and Northeastern-Seattle CEO & Dean Tayloe Washburn, hosted 17 undergraduate and graduate co-op students for a roundtable discussion in South Lake Union, home of the new Northeastern Seattle Graduate Campus.
Northeastern University, a non-profit, private research university based in Boston, plans to open a campus in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood in 2013. To generate buzz in anticipation of its arrival, it has taken to the streets with a bright red advertisement wrapped around a South Lake Union Streetcar announcing Northeastern University – Seattle.
With a new Seattle-based Northeastern University campus just weeks away from its official leases, new hires and a splashy new marketing plan, Tayloe Washburn enjoys watching the project rapidly take shape.
“I’m having a great time every day,” said Washburn, a prominent Seattle attorney and civic leader who recently took the helm of the region’s newest graduate-level university.
Northeastern plans to offer graduate classes in Seattle early next year in engineering, energy systems, computer science and other fields — with a goal of training the talent that the region’s technology and science industries crave.
Northeastern’s Seattle Graduate Campus and arrival in Seattle is moving forward. We kick off our public outreach campaign this week with the launch of this Northeastern – Seattle website and the public wrapping of the Seattle Streetcar. We now have four staff members on board and will soon be announcing our Associate Academic Dean.
