About CIE

Exploring and appreciating the complexity of individual identity.

Mission Statement

The CIE & SJRC are justice-oriented and welcoming spaces on campus that work to build socially conscious communities across difference. We host engaging programs, dialogues, and affinity groups to promote opportunities for intersectional identity development through a lens of social justice.

  • Create and hold space for all learners within the global network to explore their intersectional identities, develop self-awareness, and foster a sense of belonging.
  • Implement trainings, consultations, and dialogues to support learners, staff, and faculty in developing the skills needed to build authentic relationships across difference.
  • Provide resources for learners to understand their role in social action, activism, and civic engagement.
  • Encourage community and coalition building across Northeastern’s global network.

Values Statement

The CIE-SJRC’s work is student centered—rooted in radical love, generosity, connection and transparency. We honor the complexity of intersectionality and difference through knowing, learning & being. With an exploratory lens, we anchor grace, growth and authenticity in our work toward youth advocacy and action-oriented development.
