Welcome to the Department of City and Community Affairs at Northeastern University. We are the University’s primary liaison with neighborhood and community groups. You can find the latest information regarding community engagement and campus activities here.
Our Campus, Your City
Our faculty collects grants and other funding to solve urban issues such as city planning, building design, and anti-gang policing. Students that work with the Department of City and Community Affairs are actively engaged in community work, from cleaning up and beautifying local parks to coaching Little League teams from our surrounding neighborhoods.
Northeastern University is deeply engaged in urban life. We believe communities of people are
what make the modern city so vibrant, particularly in our surrounding neighborhoods: Roxbury,
Mission Hill, the Fenway, and the South End.
