Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are critical components of our efforts to push the boundaries of creativity, communication and innovation. As makers, innovators and entrepreneurs, we are collectively responsible for upholding and prioritizing these pillars through our individual work and collaborative partnerships.

Student Programs

F1RST Generation

Students who are the first in their families to attend college are culturally diverse and bring unique, important perspectives to the classroom and beyond.

Gender Identities + Preferred Names

We encourage all CAMD faculty, staff, and students to utilize all the resources available to ensure that their authentic selves are reflected in all aspects of the university and the college.  

Name and gender marker

If you are transgender and/or a gender non-conforming student at Northeastern and wish to have your name or gender marker changed without having legally done so, you can do so through the LGBTQA Resource Center.
