Diversity

Winners receive their trophy during Calculus Field Day.

The College of Science, in keeping with the mission of Northeastern University, is committed to building and sustaining a diverse, equitable, and inclusive scientific community of faculty, students, and staff that welcomes and respects all persons, regardless of race, gender, age, creed, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, family structure, socio-economic status, or ability status. We strive to develop an open and respectful environment that draws on talent from every sector of society and engages the global community. We are dedicated to the integration of multiple, divergent perspectives, and to the principle that a diverse and inclusive community not only supports innovation and creativity, but also creates and promotes cultural understanding throughout Northeastern’s scientific community. With these guiding principles, the College of Science aspires to promote a thriving society built on equal opportunity and social justice.

Budding scientists try out some experiments at Science Club for Girls’ “Show Me the Science.”
