Advancing a new model of higher education that moves beyond the traditional boundaries of place, Northeastern is developing a system of regional campuses in selected cities. The first, in Charlotte, North Carolina, launched in 2011. Northeastern opened a second graduate campus in aligned with their regions’ educational, workforce, and economic development needs, including programs in emerging fields, such as cybersecurity and health informatics. The courses are offered in flexible hybrid and online formats to meet the needs of working professionals. The Seattle, Washington, in 2013, a third in Silicon Valley in 2015, and is opening its Toronto campus this year. These academic hubs offer graduate degrees regional campuses also serve as platforms for expanded research and co-op partnerships between the university and industry, government, and academia.
As a university where teaching and research are grounded in global engagement, Northeastern’s impact is being felt in all corners of the world. Our students shape the world through experiential learning opportunities for work, research, study, and service with more than 3,000 partners in the United States, in 131 countries and on all seven continents; and through the diversity of a dynamic campus that connects students from 138 countries, all engaged in the exchange of ideas and the common pursuit of academic, cultural, and professional experience and enterprise.
Our faculty collaborates with colleagues on campus and on the other side of the world to pursue interdisciplinary research that turns discoveries into practical solutions, with a focus on global challenges in health, security, and sustainability.
Our alumni, prepared by Northeastern to be engaged citizens of the world before they graduate, are making a difference in 145 countries around the globe.
In our every point of global connection, we don’t just show up, we transform—whether it’s a student on co-op working with an NGO in Zambia, an Indonesian student exhibiting her culture’s artwork at Gallery 360, a faculty researcher pinpointing the genetic links among a world of crippling diseases, or an alumna whose work as a photojournalist reveals the light of hope in some of the globe’s darkest places.
