Welcome to Northeastern University’s School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs.
The School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs prepares leaders to address complex problems, serve communities, and build a just, sustainable, and resilient world. We are nationally and internationally recognized for excellence and innovation in policy-oriented education, applied research, and engagement. We drive interdisciplinary thinking and problem solving on issues of pressing concern. By educating students in both theory and practice, we prepare them to become effective contributors to social, economic, and environmental change, in careers spanning the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, as well as academic research. We are a dynamic, engaged community of learners, researchers, and practitioners committed to advancing social justice and the public good.
