For more than 100 years, Northeastern has been driven by a simple truth: Experience deepens learning like nothing else can. Today, that truth has never been more relevant. Experience propels you beyond the confines of one discipline, campus, or degree to a lifetime of growth, learning, and knowledge creation, anytime, anywhere.
Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global, experiential, research university built on a tradition of engagement with the world, creating a distinctive approach to education and research. The university offers a comprehensive range of undergraduate and graduate programs leading to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools, and select advanced degrees at graduate campuses in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Seattle.
Through co-op—our pioneering, renowned experiential program—our students put ideas into action in professional positions worldwide. They build knowledge through research, find purpose through service, and become high-impact, global citizens, the agents of change.
Experience drives our solutions-focused research enterprise. It fuels our many partnerships with industry, government, and academia, bringing great minds together to solve pressing global challenges.
Experience built into our graduate and professional-degree programs lends perspective, and direction. It turns our community—and widening network of campuses—into your far-reaching web of support. And it keeps you flexible, adaptable, and in step with the world, at every stage of your life and career.
“On this common ground, may we—the beautifully diverse individuals who together form the gorgeous mosaic of Northeastern—always stand as one.” - President Aoun
In the words of President Joseph E. Aoun, “learning and diversity are indivisible.”
Diversity of thought, culture, and viewpoint is necessary to growth, in individuals and societies. Diversity expands our potential to develop solutions to global challenges and teaches us how to be agile thinkers and learners. Living and working in diverse and inclusive environments enables us to confidently navigate different cultures, intellectual perspectives, and workplace challenges, and identify and integrate the people, knowledge, and technologies needed to create tomorrow’s sustainable communities.
Northeastern seeks to harness the power of diversity, strengthening student communities through a focus on learning experiences around the world and a commitment to a diverse, inclusive, and engaged culture.
Northeastern is committed to ensuring that its faculty closely reflect the diversity of society and embrace diverse scholarly viewpoints.
Northeastern is committed to growing as a magnet for highly accomplished professionals from all cultures and backgrounds, including underrepresented groups.

I have been working at Northeastern University part-time (More than a year)
Excellent professor, great group of researchers, Research project of great interest and significant learning.
None, everything is wonderful, as long as student is able to manage it well. If rigorous research and continuous learning is too hectic, Research Assistantship can be a big task.
Advice to Management
Excellent research. Please make sure that the research can lead to full time opportunities. After spending a lot of hours without thinking twice of anything else it would be helpful that the University understands the sacrifices of a research assistant and helps with finding full time.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Northeastern University (Boston, MA).
I had three phone interviews, including a video group interview, and a follow up, but something did not feel right. I was receiving mixed messages about the role, expectations, and culture. Withdrew after having more doubts than my gut let me move forward with.
