Now more than ever, a universe of possibilities is within reach. We planned for this moment. And the fuel of investment will accelerate progress.

Northeastern is experiencing a continuous surge of creativity and entrepreneurship. Now, the Experience campaign invites donors to invest directly in the ecosystem and the learning experiences that are proving so effective.

Northeastern’s legendary co-op model attracts students who are problem-solvers at heart, intent on testing themselves, gaining a professional edge, digging deep, and following through. With the advent of AI, these future leaders must hone the skills that position them to harness novel ideas, adapt, innovate, and execute. Northeastern is situated to provide students with unparalleled opportunities to undertake entrepreneurial projects—and meet the fast-growing demand for these experiences.

Philanthropic funding expands access and powers robust participation.
