Diverse and Inclusive Communities


Northeastern serves as a model for what we our society can be: dynamic, equipped to confront challenges, community-driven, and powered by experience. We’re building diverse, inclusive communities that enrich and engage with every experience, every challenge, and every solution.

Our efforts to advance diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging are informed by insights and experiences generously shared by students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and partners. Together, we seek to make a meaningful impact on individual lives and communities across the globe.

Campaign donors who share these values can choose to direct their support to options that include:

  • Asian American Center
  • Center for Intercultural Engagement and Social Justice Resource Center
  • Center for Spirituality, Dialogue, and Service
  • John D. O’Bryant African American Institute
  • Latinx Student Cultural Center
  • LGBTQA Resource Center
  • Foundation Year
  • Women and Entrepreneurship Programs

“This campaign will allow us to dramatically expand opportunities for the Northeastern community to promote justice, build relationships between groups and individuals, facilitate inclusivity, and educate across difference.”
