CSSH students honored for co-op accomplishments

Seventeen high-achieving seniors were recognized for their co-op accomplishments at the 45th annual Outstanding Cooperative Education Awards.

North­eastern Uni­ver­sity cel­e­brated the co-​​op accom­plish­ments of 17 high-​​achieving seniors on Wednesday after­noon at the 45th annual Out­standing Coop­er­a­tive Edu­ca­tion Awards.

Three stu­dents received named awards. Victor Cruz, SSH’16, received the Paul M. Pratt Award, which is pre­sented to the stu­dent who best demon­strates excep­tional per­sonal and pro­fes­sional growth as a result of his or her co-​​op expe­ri­ences. Cruz did two of his three co-​​ops with the Insti­tute for Health­care Improve­ment, a non­profit based in Cam­bridge, Mass­a­chu­setts, and is cur­rently exploring the pos­si­bility of launching a social enter­prise before enrolling in law school.

Farhana Hus­sain, SSH’16, received the William Jef­ferson Alcott Jr. Award, which is pre­sented to the stu­dent who best uti­lizes his or her aca­d­emic training in a cre­ative way to make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to society while demon­strating excep­tional achieve­ment in coop­er­a­tive edu­ca­tion. Hus­sain com­pleted co-​​ops with the Inter­na­tional Center for Jour­nal­ists, the NATO Defense Col­lege, and the Atlantic Council, a trio of global expe­ri­ences that she plans to parlay into a full time job in the nation’s cap­ital.
