Letter to the Editor: Social responsibility “towers” above all

enter There is no doubt that Northeastern is looking to build an Ivory Tower, and possibly within the next 10 years. In only the past five years, the university has ratcheted up the support for academics, and the campus is looking more and more like an island unto itself.

source url For those keeping score at home, though, it’s obvious that Northeastern is a little late to the game, especially in the ancient towers of Boston, where even the engineering school down the road, as MIT was once known, became the less stuffy bridge to 21st century expansion. Harvard, MIT and Boston University may always have higher towers, but Northeastern has the chance to pick up where most of their counterparts left off in the realm of social responsibility as we inevitably bound our way into respectable-institution status.

That means both parties can make a conscious choice to involve themselves in research projects that will help alleviate human suffering and environmental destruction they know happens.

These are programs that society is already embracing that can built into the curriculum.

But in this case, they’d be expecting it for everyone. And that makes all the difference.
