In the words of President Joseph E. Aoun, “learning and diversity are indivisible.”

Diversity of thought, culture, and viewpoint is necessary to growth, in individuals and societies. Diversity expands our potential to develop solutions to global challenges and teaches us how to be agile thinkers and learners. Living and working in diverse and inclusive environments enables us to confidently navigate different cultures, intellectual perspectives, and workplace challenges, and identify and integrate the people, knowledge, and technologies needed to create tomorrow’s sustainable communities.

With this perspective in mind, this portal was created to share the broad range of diversity and inclusion-related efforts integrated throughout the learning and living experience at Northeastern University.

The highlighted initiatives, programs, centers and projects featured on this portal introduce you to a network of efforts built through and for our student body, our faculty, campus staff, and the local and global community.

We hope that you will explore each key area and search through the themes to discover efforts that you can become involved in, follow progress, or add your comments or suggestions.

The Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion welcomes your comments and questions related to our diversity and inclusion efforts across campus.
