About Us

WHO WE ARE

An R1 research university, designed for impact

Northeastern is a global research university with a prestigious R1 ranking, and is renowned for its experiential approach to learning. In Arlington—a hub of technical innovation, security, defense, and policy—we partner with government, industry, and nonprofits to prepare learners for leadership in jobs of the future. 

This campus is led by CEO and Dean Jamie Jones Miller, whose 16 years of government service include roles as Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Legislative Affairs and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense. In these roles, she advised the Secretary and Deputy Secretary of Defense on legislative strategy and managed relationships with members of Congress and key congressional staff, military departments as well as the White House, National Security Council, and other federal departments and agencies in support of DoD which enables her to partner with these agencies to create connections and opportunities for our campus.
