Northeastern University celebrated the highest achievements of students and faculty across its 13 global campuses at its 14th annual Academic Honors Convocation on Thursday. The event, held at Blackman Auditorium in Ell Hall in Boston, recognized members of the Northeastern community for their scholarship, research, leadership and innovation.

“We are celebrating the 125th year of this university — 125 years of excellence,” said Northeastern President Joseph E. Aoun. “This event only started 14 years ago, but I can assure you that it will continue for another 125 years.”

Aoun said the event has grown so much since its inception that it would take a book — a very large one — to publish all the honorees. “It’s really a testament to what you have been doing in terms of excellence,” he said. The winners were joined by family and friends as awards were announced for undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty.

“Over the past year, you, our honorees, have achieved new heights in scholarship, research teaching and innovation,” said David Madigan, the university’s provost and senior vice president for academic affairs. “You’ve exemplified the core values of Northeastern — collaborating across disciplines, infusing experience of entrepreneurial thinking into everything you do, and solving problems that have a transformative global impact.”
