Please join me on Wednesday, April 18 at 3:00pm in the Curry Student Center Ballroom for Northeastern’s  second annual Academic Honors Convocation, one of the most significant events of the academic year.

We will recognize excellence across many dimensions and honor some of our most accomplished students, faculty scholars, staff members, as well as a truly remarkable alumnus. Their transformative research and scholarship, exceptional teaching and mentoring, impressive global experience, and path-breaking innovations have contributed tremendously to the momentum of our university. More important, these honorees have each made a profound impact on the world—in the sciences, health, public service, and the arts and humanities.

I look forward to seeing you on April 18, so that together we can properly celebrate their many talents and accomplishments.
