Please join me on Thursday, April 18, at 3:00 p.m. in the Curry Student Center Ballroom for Northeastern’s third annual Academic Honors Convocation, among the most significant events of our academic year.

We will recognize distinction across multiple dimensions of our university, honoring extraordinary members of our community whose transformative research and scholarship, exceptional teaching and mentoring, remarkable global experiences, service to our students and colleagues, and pioneering innovations have contributed to Northeastern’s leadership and momentum.

Each of our honorees has made an indelible impression on the world—in nearly every field of human endeavor.

I look forward to seeing you on April 18, when we join together as a university community to pay tribute to their remarkable achievements.
