At Suffolk University, our mission is one of forward momentum. We shape students who aim to be powerful agents of change in a swiftly changing world.

We have a long history of innovation and adaptation to meet the challenges of the moment. Now more than ever, adaptability is crucial. We demand it of ourselves as an institution as much as we cultivate it in our students.

Our commitment to nurturing our students' academic, professional, and personal journeys continues to be our focus. We remain true to the core components of the Suffolk experience that prepare our students for success—however they define it. We’ve reimagined our classrooms and connections to the wider world to provide the same valuable education we’ve offered for more than a century.

Experiential learning is critical to interpersonal skills development and a cornerstone of a Suffolk education. Our faculty members are ready to enrich today’s learning environment with these essential opportunities. 

Boston is our home and our launch point. Our partnerships around the city bring our students internships, service learning opportunities, and project-based curricula—not to mention arts, culture, history, and more.

The workforce needs culturally competent thinkers who understand problems on a global scale. While international travel may not be an immediate reality, our faculty and staff are working with partners around the world to bring their vital perspectives to virtual class discussions from any time zone.

Students here aspire to inspire. What they learn here isn’t just aligned with the current moment—it boldly points to a better future. And our supportive and welcoming community is there every step of the way to help them bring their potential to life.

The Suffolk experience remains the purposeful combination of transformative opportunities our students collect along the way—opportunities that fuel their growth. These experiences are unique to our students and uniquely Suffolk. No two Suffolk stories are ever the same.

Our students have never been about the status quo. They’re too busy changing perceptions, pushing for progress, and raising the bar. They are engaged in their education, active participants in building careers they’re passionate about, and a driving force for good. And nothing can change that.

What comes next is ours for the making.
