The Parents Leadership Council Launches First Global Parent Community

The Parents Leadership Council is pleased to launch Northeastern’s first formal international parent community, based in London. In addition to connecting with each other, this committed group of local families provides guidance and support to the parents of students working and studying in London, and seeks to advance the university’s dynamic presence in the U.K. and around the globe.


The Parents Leadership Council (PLC) is a vibrant, active, and diverse volunteer group of Northeastern parent ambassadors who steer community outreach domestically and internationally; provide feedback on university activities and communications; and contribute generous philanthropic support.


NCH Program for NUflex / NUstart students in the U.K.

As we approach the start of the fall term, each Northeastern University student has decided on the best approach to their education this fall – whether it’s arriving for classes in Boston or taking them online in their home city. For those who have opted for remote learning from their home in the United Kingdom, Northeastern is launching a London-based network to support their academic and personal development this fall.

Centered at Northeastern’s New College of the Humanities (NCH) in London, this initiative is designed to host experiential learning opportunities for these students during the fall term, and support their intellectual, civic, personal and professional, intercultural, and wellness goals. Through face-to face interactions and online programming, it will connect Northeastern students in the region to each other, to alumni and parent networks, and to NCH students, faculty, and services. It will host a series of academic and cultural events, alongside social and professional networking opportunities, library membership, and wellbeing resources.

If you have questions, please contact NCH Director of Student Mobility, Michael Peplar, at [email protected].

Northeastern strives for a learning experience that extends beyond the classroom, anywhere and anytime. If your student is staying in the United Kingdom, we encourage them to take advantage of the experiential learning our London campus can offer.
