Our Vision for Diversity and Inclusive Impact

Northeastern University is committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive community where individuals of all identities, backgrounds, and experiences can thrive, have a strong sense of belonging, and achieve academic, research, and professional success. Our global university system is also committed to the idea of forging connections across our diverse campus neighborhoods. The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) works as a central coordinating hub to provide strategic DEI leadership across the global university system to achieve these ideals.

“Our end goal is inclusion and a sense of belonging, a place where people feel valued and respected; this is the barometer for a positive climate for all. We must continually use this benchmark as we look to foster a climate of inclusion across our campuses.”

— Karl W. Reid, Ed.D., CDP
