Diversity, Access, and Inclusion

“Learning networks of diverse ideas, experiences, and perspectives—activated by inclusiveness—strengthen professional, intellectual, and cultural agility.” –Northeastern 2025

Undergraduate Research and Fellowships, in keeping with the mission and policies of Northeastern University and the goals of Northeastern 2025, is committed to building and sustaining a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community of learners that welcomes and respects all persons, regardless of race, color, religion, religious creed, genetic information, sex, age, ethnicity, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, family structure, socioeconomic status, ability status, immigration status, or veteran status.

We strive to develop an open and respectful environment that draws on talent from every sector of society and engages local and global communities with humility and authenticity. Our work is founded on the principle that the best answers – and the best questions – are born out of bringing diverse perspectives, experiences, and knowledges into conversation with one another. Therefore, we believe that a diverse and inclusive community of researchers, creative practitioners, and fellowship applicants not only fosters innovation and creativity, but is a precondition of the excellence for which we strive.
