THE Game Changers FUND
Northeastern University has always recruited leading scientists and scholars at the frontiers of innovation. A new $50 million Game Changers Fund will increase the impact of our educational and research enterprise by expanding the university’s interdisciplinary faculty.
Through this universitywide initiative, Northeastern is seeking next-generation scholars to advance innovation worldwide.
“Discoveries that change the world are brought about by those willing to break through barriers and change the rules of the game.”— Joseph E. Aoun, President
Northeastern’s faculty members are advancing scholarship and making transformative discoveries in fields that will shape the next century, from cybersecurity and coastal sustainability, to policy and the arts. The Game Changers Fund aims to attract additional high-impact faculty members, including Nobel laureates and visionary scholars who are redefining their disciplines.
Northeastern’s faculty will play a critical role in achieving the mission of Northeastern 2025, the university’s 10-year academic plan: to accelerate discovery, free research from silos, and make innovation more agile.
