Challenge Sponsor Spotlight: Level Education from Northeastern

Written by

Over the course of the Future of Higher Ed Challenge, we'll be featuring Q&As with our Challenge Sponsors, the organizations and individuals who have partnered with us in building this Challenge, and will play a significant role in supporting top ideas moving forward.

This week, let’s get to know Level Education, one of our 4 Challenge sponsors.

The Quick Facts

Level Education from Northeastern University provides high-quality, intensive, experiential educational programs that enable lifelong learners to acquire the skills needed to advance their personal and professional goals.

The Juicy Details

What are 3 words that describe your organization?

Experiential, Intensive, Personalized

If your organization had a superhero doppelganger, which would it be?

The Beast. He’s a professor by day but has superhuman agility and strength when he hulks out. He's also a team player as part of the X-Men.

What brought you to the Higher Ed Challenge? Give us one word that describes your feelings about it!

Excitement. There aren’t many places you can have a bigger or more immediate impact than at a university. Universities have vast networks, abundance of talent, innovative research, and are anchors of their local community. This mix creates an ideal environment for innovation. That said, the ecosystem work is bigger than any single institution or even the nonprofit sector writ large; and the best ideas are more likely to come from outside the ivory tower. We’re excited to sponsor the OpenIDEO Challenge to reimagine higher education, and we hope to inspire others to believe that they are not only stakeholders in education, but are also change agents.

If you could give participants in the Challenge one piece of advice, what would it be?

Think big!

What are the biggest opportunity areas you see in the higher ed space?

Today’s students can’t expect to have the same kind of career their parents might have with consistent W-2 income. With the rise of the gig economy and torrid pace of innovation, people need to be able to create their own jobs whether they are entrepreneurs starting new businesses, or intrapreneurs inside an organization. Universities can future-proof their students by “teaching them how to fish”, and those students will become tomorrow’s donors, employers, and alumni advocates.

What kinds of ideas or solutions are you most excited about seeing in the Challenge?  

As the President of our university often says: learners are either short on experience and long on time, or short on time and long on experience. We're particularly interested in solutions for learners that are short on time and long on experience.


Image title


The Fine Print:

Where is your organization headquartered?

Boston, Massachusetts

Who does your organization work with?

Lifelong learners!

How else will your organization be involved in the Challenge?

Level Education from Northeastern University will be providing $25,000 worth of challenge support in the form of an "Idea to MVP" entrepreneurship bootcamp for one or more qualifying top ideas, and access to programs in other in-demand tech skills. We look forward to helping you make your idea a reality!

Educational stages are subdivisions of formal learning, typically covering early childhood education, primary education, secondary education and tertiary education. I have been using https://myhomeworkhelp.com/ for years. Our main objective is to promote the intellectual and physical development of boys and girls, respecting the personal rhythm of each child, meeting their needs and providing them with the opportunity to enjoy their own experiences in the company of other children. We have a team of highly qualified professionals responsible for managing and providing infant education. In addition, we have designated areas and suitable materials to attend to their needs, appropriate activities designed to awaken the imagination and promote the development of personal independence and a model of behaviour which involves both the parents and all personnel of the centre. This is all carried in a system of immersion in the English language which enables the children to communicate in English in a natural way, from an early age.

Jordana Brewster is an ultra-casual chick. She is neither a slave to fashion, nor to designer handbags, which I can respect. In the five-plus years I have worked here, I have mostly seen her carry one bag, with extremely rare exceptions: the Hermès Evelyne. She owns one in brown, and one in black, and I suspect that over time she's owned multiples of each. Based on our research (which is fairly comprehensive about this sort of thing), the best hermes evelyne replica is one of the only styles of handbag that Jordana carries in her day-to-day life. She does not lug this one around on the red carpet, but frankly, if she did, I would not be surprised. Don't believe me? Scroll on. I feel like Jordana can teach us all a little something about caring less, cherishing what you have, giving angry side-eye and rocking a bunch of overalls. If you feel inspired to own an high quality hermes evelyne replica of your own, you're in luck. Despite Hermès's reputation for being elusive when it comes to handbags, the brand actually carries a generous 32 (yes, 32!) different versions of the Evelyne on its website, ready for your purchasing pleasure. This black version, which is much like Jordana's, will set you back $3,725. visit http://www.hermessale.com

The present understudies can't hope to have a similar sort of profession their folks may have with steady W-2 wage. With the ascent of the gig economy and torrid pace of advancement, individuals should have the capacity to make their own particular employments whether they are business people beginning new organizations, or business visionaries inside an association.

Agree with the material depicted in the article. Nowadays education has become very complicated for students and it is not just because of educational loans, but also the studies itself have become very intense. And students can find a bit of relief only because of the help of writing services like this https://ca.edubirdie.com/blog/descriptive-essay-about-a-person. The changes to the educational system are required and inevitable. Just hope they'll be for the better.

Hello everyone, I agree that today education system needs to be modified because it is so overloaded. My classmates and I physically do not have enough time and it is unreal not to resort to some essay samples http://essay.town/

We should Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir is a sturdily aggravating, yet dimly unwise tome for each academic eccentric who thought they were the main ones to think the possessions that Lawson sets out to state so anyone can hear. Like giggling at a memorial service, this book is both bad-mannered and difficult to retain down once you begin. http://www.ordercollegepapers.com/write-a-paper-for-me

I think any changes in educational system is for better since it's not rly good right now i believe. I'd like to see more passion from students and it can be achieved only by waking up interest in them. That's why we need to change system. To make it interesting and desired. Like today students are using best essay writing services like https://writeanypapers.com/ to get rid of boring duties and stuff. Can't say it's wrong tho.

I will go with Smith College. Believe it or not, Smith is actually a very prestigious college, even though it is not as well-known as Northeastern. I am not so sure which is better for engineering, but you cannot go wrong with Smith College. If I were to rank those two schools, I will rank 8/10 for Smith and 5/10 for Northeastern. http://www.ezassignmenthelp.co.uk
