At Northeastern we are proud to call ourselves a global university, full of diverse cultures, religions and ideologies. If you believe students have the power to make the world a better place, the Cultural Inclusion LLC is your new home! This LLC is a community of open-minded, progressive students who are interested in exploring who they are, learning from each other and celebrating diverse perspectives. By joining this LLC, you will gain a deeper understanding of both your own culture and that of those around you. You will collaborate with your fellow students to discover, inform and applaud the differences and similarities of race, culture, gender and sexual orientation. Fostering a greater cultural awareness, you will seek to embrace the diversity of the Northeastern population and strive to create a more inclusive residential experience.
Through programs like international pop music night, ethnic cooking demonstrations, and cultural excursions around Boston, students in this community become more globally minded citizens. This enriching experience makes students more comfortable with world travel and prepares them to study abroad and participate in Dialogue of Civilizations and international co-ops. Students will also be encouraged to attend programs at the Social Justice Resource Center throughout the year to enhance their experience, as well as the cultural centers on campus. Students will also be encouraged to participate in Safe Zone and Intergroup Dialogue training.

"THOUGH I AM AN INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS MAJOR, I ADMIT THAT I OFTEN HAVE TO RUN TO A MAP WHEN MY NEIGHBORS TELL ME WHERE THEY COME FROM. I HAVE NEVER HAD FRIENDS FROM BANGLADESH, AND PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT THAT KAZAKHSTAN WAS A FICTIONAL PLACE THAT BORAT CALLED HOME. IN THE GLOBAL FRONTIERS LLC, I CAN LEARN ABOUT THE CULTURES OF MY FRIENDS-WHICH ARE INCREDIBLY DIFFERENT FROM MINE. I GO FOR DIM SUM WITH PEOPLE FROM HONG KONG AND DISCUSS POLITICS OF THE MIDDLE EAST WITH MY ROOMMATE FROM DUBAI. THE BUILDING IS A TOLERANT ATMOSPHERE WHERE ALL CULTURES ARE ACCEPTED AND DISCUSSED, AND I LOVE TO CALL THIS PLACE HOME!"
