The next big ideas for Northeastern

On Wednesday, teams of university leaders, faculty, and staff presented bold proposals for innovative ideas they argued would advance Northeastern and realize the goals of the new academic plan, Northeastern 2025.

University senior leadership formed seven multi-departmental integration teams—called “I-Teams”—that were charged with imagining bold ideas and ways to implement them. The teams presented those ideas to Northeastern’s senior leadership and each other at an afternoon retreat at East Village and discussed ways in which their ideas align and could be implemented.

Each I-Team focused on one of the following topics: global system of admissions, digital lifelong learning, employee competencies and new hiring, a Northeastern digital commons, integrating humanics into student learning, branding around experience, and integrating constituent relations.
