Nurture Creativity for the Good of Society
Northeastern embraces art and creative expression as necessary ingredients in learning, problem-solving, and innovation. Creative and intellectual pursuits provide context for the prolific visual culture we live in; they play an integral role in shaping rapid technological and medical advances.
Gifts to the arts and humanities fund rare new blends of interdisciplinary collaboration among faculty, and thriving partnerships with other institutions.
Gifts may support
Interdisciplinary initiatives and centers
Endowed faculty chairs and professorships
Graduate fellowships and training
Interdisciplinary ventures like the Humanities Center integrates the arts and culture with dimensions of public policy, law, science, and medicine. The Creative Industry Initiative pulls together individuals interested in music, multimedia studies, graphic design, communication, business, and technological entrepreneurship.
Outside of campus, architecture students work with city agencies to design urban housing proposals for real sites around Boston. Collaborations with Hebrew College, the Massachusetts College of Art, the New England Aquarium and the New England Conservatory inspire our campus community and our neighbors to be both creators and appreciators of the arts.
