Image of Collaboration


We work as a team on each project to ensure a thoughtful and holistic approach to campus planning, as well as our real estate and design partnerships. The success of our planning hinges on strong collaboration with many stakeholders to develop project goals and set priorities.

Image of Community Engagement

Community Engagement

Like experiential learning for our students and research partnerships for our faculty, our campuses are strengthened when we identify mutual interests and innovative ideas in concert with the communities where we have space and programming.

Sustainability + Resiliency

As a key research pillar and vital concern for our campus community, sustainability and resilience practices are actively integrated within our built environment to demonstrate our values as an institution and to reduce our environmental footprint.

Image of Agility


We plan for space that can adapt to the rapid pace of change in education, technology and the workforce. Embracing innovation as well as the lessons of the past, we need to be nimble as we plan for physical assets and advise on the long-term impacts of space and design decisions.

Image of Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

We know that opportunity isn’t evenly distributed, and we work hard to fulfill Northeastern’s mission of offering accessible, relevant education and preparation for careers that are rewarding and have impact in the world.  Principles of fairness and equity underlie this mission as they underlie how we approach our work and our personal interactions.

Performance Measurement

The university has set ambitious goals in the Northeastern 2025 academic plan, just as each member of our team sets personal goals that allow us to work strategically, set priorities and measure our progress.
