NUDREAM is a program designed to encourage personal and professional growth by increasing interaction, communication and community awareness amongst staff of color at Northeastern University. The program offers workshops in areas such as networking, career development, mentorship and various social opportunities throughout the year to build and engage with community. NUDream began as the 2014 pilot program “Notion in Motion” sponsored by the Enrollment Management & Student Affairs (EMSA) Division. It is now a collaborative engagement between the Office of Institutional Diversity & Inclusion (OIDI) and EMSA, and we aim to serve the entire campus community.
