The Honors Program encourages students to actively participate in civic engagement here on campus, in the larger Boston community, and beyond. Activities range in scope from sponsoring events on campus, episodic volunteer opportunities in the Boston community, and weekly volunteer commitments off campus. These activities provide opportunities for students to strengthen their commitment to service, enhance their leadership skills, and open the door to philanthropic activities while on campus. Close ties with the Center of Community Service opens the door to many of the chances to serve the Northeastern and Boston community.
A collaborative project sponsored by the Northeastern University Honors Program and the Center of Community Service, the Honors Outreach Project seeks to introduce first-year honors students to the neighborhoods and communities that surround Northeastern University. It aims to instill a commitment to service and civic engagement in student that will continue throughout their Northeastern experience. Overall, the project aims to instill in students a commitment to service and civic engagement that will continue throughout their Northeastern experience. This year’s program was a huge success, but it would not have been possible without upper-class group leaders.
