Northeastern celebrated the highest achievements of students and faculty at the 13th Annual Academic Honors Convocation in East Village on Thursday.
A wide variety of achievements were highlighted, including two new faculty awards that recognized the university’s global commitment while emphasizing the theme of the day.
“We have been the only university that I know of that has built the global university system—the only university that is allowing our students to roam,” Northeastern President Joseph E. Aoun said in his closing remarks. “The end-game is leadership and impact. You have demonstrated leadership in your fields. And you have demonstrated impact. So you are the role models and from now on this is what we’re all about: Impacting the world, being engaged with the world and trying to make it a better world.”
