Letter From The Director

Dear Students,

Kramer Letter FI

Dr. Laurie Kramer

It’s an immense pleasure to welcome you to the Northeastern University Honors Program and our exciting, innovative and supportive learning community.

Honors at Northeastern offers students a vast array of enriched academic, co-curricular, residential, and international learning experiences that can take you to the far reaches of campus, Boston’s communities, and the world. Through our interdisciplinary and experiential learning philosophy that blends knowledge and practice, and through personalized mentorship, we’ll help you select among an exciting set of options— to not only help you delve deep into your chosen area of study and prepare for a rewarding career—but also to enable you to have immediate impact in solving the problems you care most deeply about.

From intriguing interdisciplinary Inquiry courses for first-year students and Seminars for upper class students, faculty-mentored research and creative endeavors, community-based service learning, and global experiences— all led by premier Honors faculty— you’ll have no shortage of opportunities by which to shape your unique learning journey.

What is special about being in Honors at Northeastern is that you will be empowered to create your own unique experiences—as early as your first day on campus. You will be the architect of your entire Honors journey. While we will provide the resources, the mentoring, and place an appetizing menu of learning opportunities at your fingertips, you will be the one to piece them all together, to create something distinctly personalized to your passions and goals.

From your first days on campus– when you will be introduced to members of your Honors Living Learning Community— to when you graduate with Honors Distinction, you’ll thrive within a rich network of learning communities of peers, faculty, advisors, and alumni who will support you along the way.

Along with the Northeastern University Honors Program faculty, advisors, and students, I warmly welcome you to learn more about the vibrant learning opportunities we offer and prepare for your brilliant future. We want to see you embark on your self-directed educational journey, go to all the places that your imagination takes you, and ultimately, use your Northeastern Honors education to change the world.

Kind regards,

Laurie Kramer, Ph.D.
Director and Professor
