Cultural Centers

Asian American Center – The center provides space and supports the experiences of the Northeastern community’s Asian American students. Located in a three-story brownstone building on Hemenway Street, the center is a gathering place for many students and hosts groups such as the AASIA Peer Mentoring Program and the Pan Asian American Council.

John D. O’Bryant African-American Institute – The institute is committed to intellectually, culturally, and socially inspiring students toward excellence, success, and service through programs, resources, services, and activities—while also fostering a nurturing, supportive, and welcoming environment focused on students of African origin. Moreover, the institute is dedicated to engaging the broader university community, the surrounding urban community, and the world for balanced student and leadership development enjoined with the promotion and distinction of their career goals.

Latino/a Student Cultural Center – The center empowers Latino/a leaders of tomorrow in an increasingly global environment through academic, personal and professional development—while also promoting interactions between NU students from diverse backgrounds to enhance their academic, cultural, and social experience. The center offers programming that focuses on leadership development, socio-cultural experience, alumni involvement, relationship building with our urban neighbors, and academic support.

Graduate Student Government (GSG)

The GSG is the official liaison between graduate students and the university’s faculty and administration, enabling grad students to influence change in the educational programs, processes, and administrative management of the university. Open meetings are held monthly and all graduate students are eligible to become GSG Senators and become voting members. Major functions of the GSG include:

  •  Individual Funding – The GSG will provide funding to graduate students up to $375 per academic year for conference, competition, or other activity expenses, including registration fees, travel and lodging.
  •  Student Group Funding – The GSG will provide funding up to $3,000 per academic year to recognized graduate student organizations for programs, events, and activities.

Health and Counseling Services

At CAMD, the health and well-being of our graduate students is a priority. Northeastern University’s Health and Counseling Services comprises board-certified clinicians (nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, and physician assistants) and behavioral health experts (mental health counselors, a psychiatrist, psychologists, and social workers) who are committed to meeting the university’s health care needs. Health and Counseling Services also maintains a close relationship with local hospitals to provide superior health services.
