INSPIRING ENROLLMENT AND FOSTERING MEANINGFUL CONNECTIONS

The Africa Global Initiative (AGI) seeks to strengthen Northeastern’s ties with Africa, and increase African student enrollment and exchanges.  Its goal is to enhance existing connections and foster new partnerships in order to fund scholarships, grow co-op and internship programs, and develop joint research opportunities with the most prestigious African higher education institutions.

NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY: UNIQUELY POSITIONED TO ENGAGE THE NEXT GENERATION OF AFRICA’S EXPERIENTIAL LEARNERS
