Northeastern University Future Leaders

Faculty & Staff Affinity Group

Northeastern University Future Leaders (NUFL) is a faculty and staff affinity group.

This group aims to provide a space for young professionals, future leaders, and others in the early to middle stages of their career trajectories who are seeking to develop and strengthen their long-term opportunities and impact across Northeastern’s global campuses. This group provides young professionals and those new to Northeastern with mentoring, professional development, networking opportunities, and a sense of community across departments.

The mission of this group is to establish a community of faculty and staff across the institution who seek to advance personally and professionally in their careers. Our key focus areas are:

  • Career Advancement: To develop and cultivate tools and skills that aid in the professional growth of the membership and offer relevant mentorship opportunities,
    with the end goal of preparing members for the next step or phase in their career trajectories.
  • Social Engagement: To raise awareness and promote community building through volunteer drives, community events, social mixers, etc. We aim to connect young professionals and communities who are in need of services.
  • Personal Development: To facilitate the development of robust personal networks and programming for personal growth.
