The Office of Sustainability at Northeastern University

          Exciting changes are coming to Northeastern, as the Office of Sustainability will become the Climate Justice and Sustainability Hub to reflect our intention to engage, implement, and put research into action on climate justice, sustainability, and resilience at Northeastern.

        The Climate Justice and Sustainability Hub will work to elevate Northeastern’s ability to leverage the talent from our students, faculty, and staff, and global partnerships to expand our leadership role and implement just solutions to address the climate crisis.
