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.
