Let’s Celebrate Suffolk University

Welcome to Spring Week! Beginning today and running through next Friday, April 30, we are celebrating Suffolk with a broad range of online events.

What a Year It Has Been

This date, March 18, marks the one-year anniversary of all Suffolk University classes moving online for the spring 2020 semester. Tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of nearly all university employees being sent home to work remotely. It has been quite a year.

Reflecting as We Honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Today, we honor the life and reflect on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., whose nonviolent pursuit of racial justice and equality awakened a nation and changed the world.

Mask Up For Our Students

To Students Wanting to Participate: We Hear You

Civic engagement is central to this University’s values and to our mission.

This is true no matter what an individual’s political party or affiliation might be. We are so proud that our students recognize […]


In its most recent edition, the Washington Monthly magazine included Suffolk University on its 2020 list of America’s Best Colleges for Student Voting. A total of 157 institutions across the nation made the list. The magazine looked at school-specific student voting action plans, registration numbers, turnout rates for participating campuses, and other factors. It’s no […]

Your Voices Will Be Heard

I have asked myself over and over in recent days what I can say that will bring comfort to the Suffolk community, and particularly our members of the Black community who are suffering in the wake of the barbaric and tragic killing of George Floyd. I’m not sure there is really anything I can say […]

We close out the academic year working, studying, and learning remotely. It is surreal and has been for almost two months now. But Suffolk is a vibrant place, and our students, […]
