Acknowledging and supporting student organizations that engage alumni.

The Alumni Engagement Award was conceived to acknowledge and support student organizations that actively engage alumni and encourage them to participate in or lead dynamic programming as part of our overall student engagement strategy. The award includes a physical award and monetary gift to support further engagement next academic year. The Alumni Engagement Award is presented annually during the Student Life Awards, a program of the Center for Student Involvement that celebrates the extraordinary efforts of Northeastern’s diverse student leaders and organizations.


The inaugural Alumni Engagement Award was presented to the Northeastern University Women’s Leadership Network during the 2016 Student Life Awards on Thursday, April 14, 2016. According to its mission statement, the network “cultivates an ongoing conversation about the advancement of women in the workforce and how women can be empowered at all levels in their careers to achieve long-term success and fulfillment.”

Katie Wong, DMSB’16, left, and Anu Singh, president and treasurer, respectively, of the Northeastern Women’s Leadership Network, accepted the Alumni Engagement Award on the organization’s behalf.
