Global Exploration

All over the world, people are seeking knowledge to fuel the future of our interconnected economies, health, sustainability, and security—and the future of problem-solving.

Northeastern has made purposeful, strategic investments to create a massive, networked campus that spans the world. Today, the Northeastern community is made up of individuals who come from all over the globe, and who will continue to build professional and personal lives as global citizens. As our network grows ever larger and more representative of the world’s populations, our next challenge is to unleash our tremendous collective capacity to enact needed change.

The world’s most pressing problems are in our sights. Through use-inspired research, innovation, experiential learning, and collaborative initiatives we will advance frontiers and improve the quality of life throughout the world we share.

The beauty of a globally connected learning community is that the opportunity to serve humanity—to unlock insights, innovate, and grow—is always all around us. Through the campaign, donors can power solutions on a global scale.
