Driving exploration, discovery, and innovation in math and science

The College of Science is a nucleus of creativity and experimentation, a hub where faculty and students share ideas in the language of their intersecting disciplines. Immersed in experiential learning and research, some literally venture to the ends of the globe in pursuit of new knowledge.

Through the Empower campaign, you will promote bold, daring levels of inquiry. The following are among our highest fundraising priorities:

Seeding Innovation. Sustaining urban coastal environments. Developing new materials that generate and conserve energy. Finding cures for the world’s neglected and microbial diseases. Shining a spotlight on the nature of human emotions and their neurological origins. New centers dedicated to these endeavors will amplify our strengths.

Building Our Faculty. In health, security, sustainability, we are assembling teams of faculty to attack complex problems by pooling expertise. To recruit and retain world leaders in emerging frontiers, including nanomedicine and network science, we seek endowments for chairs and professorships.

Championing undergraduate and graduate students. To compete at the highest levels for exceptional talent, we seek funding for scholarships and graduate fellowships. Undergraduate research co-ops—particularly on campus, at Boston’s renowned hospitals and institutes, and around the world—are also top priority.

Please join us in an extraordinary quest. Your support in the Empower campaign will advance real-world learning and use-inspired research—work that will improve lives, and sustain and nurture life on Earth.

“North­eastern holds a unique posi­tion in the U.S. with a dis­tinc­tive vision as a global, expe­ri­en­tial, research intensive university. I am excited to be a part of the team in such a dynamic envi­ron­ment.” 

—Kenneth W. Henderson, Dean
