About Empower

Experiential. Relevant. Entrepreneurial. Empowering. Some things about Northeastern will never change. But the Empower campaign will—with your help—transform higher education for today’s students and professionals. And it will fuel our efforts to solve the greatest global challenges of our time.

How? By investing in intellectual capital, human capital: Our students and faculty.

The campaign has three strategic priorities. We will leverage our century-strong leadership in experiential education—co-op, study abroad, service learning, and research—to prepare exceptional student-leaders. We will recruit and support a world-class faculty. And we will ignite innovation in emerging fields and industries, including health, security, and sustainability.

Together, we can:

  • Discover drugs for diseases from cancer and diabetes to malaria;
  • Build homes and skyscrapers that withstand earthquakes;
  • Invent devices that help disabled patients regain lost function; and
  • Settle new frontiers of inquiry: urban coastal science, sustainable manufacturing, renewable energy, restorative justice, video gaming, and green architecture, to name but a few goals.

With your support, Northeastern will continue a legacy of innovation, entrepreneurship, and service to society. Join us in shaping the future.
