Delegation Requests and Resources

Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global, experiential, top-tier R1 research university built on a tradition of engagement with the world.  As one of the world’s leading research universities, Northeastern University welcomes international delegation visits.  In order to better accommodate official visitors, please review the following resources to explore and develop collaborative relationships with Northeastern University’s Global Campus Network.   


Planning Your Visit 

The Global Safety and Support Network reviews and supports delegation visits when: 

  • A delegation is making an official visit request on behalf of an international institution, organization, or government;  
  • A delegation has requested to meet with senior administrators or university leadership; or 
  • A delegation, with a party of two or more people, has requested to meet with multiple units on campus and the topics of interest extend beyond one academic department or area. 

Delegation visits should be requested at least four weeks in advance of the proposed visit date by using the Northeastern University Delegation Visit form.
