Experience. Prepare.
Connect. Suffolk.


We are a borderless community rooted in an urban landscape of opportunity.

Our hands-on, experience-based approach to learning extends beyond traditional classroom walls into every corner of Boston…and around the globe. Our students move with the pulse of the city, embracing the limitless learning, career development and service opportunities that surround them.

Starting in the fall of 2018, members of the Suffolk community came together as part of a strategic planning process, and in large and small groups, we took a deep dive into better understanding our advantages, our challenges and our opportunities. The result is Suffolk 2025, the University’s promise to invest strategically in initiatives that prepare current and future generations of students to engage and thrive in a rapidly changing world and to positively impact communities.
