Khoury College has a diverse tenured/tenure-track faculty of 87 and it offers a broad array of research and educational opportunities to students. Since 2012, the college has hired 147 outstanding tenured/tenure-track and full-time-non-tenure-track faculty members and plans to continue this strategic growth in the coming years. Faculty research spans all areas of computing and is interdisciplinary across seven of Northeastern's colleges; 33 of the 87 tenured/tenure-track faculty have joint appointments with other academic departments, including Electrical and Computer Engineering, Art and Design, Health Sciences, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, Philosophy and Religion, Business, Mathematics, and Law. Khoury faculty members are integral to Northeastern University's multidisciplinary institutes including the Network Science Institute, the Cybersecurity and Privacy Institute, the Institute for Experiential Robotics, and the new Institute of Experiential Artificial Intelligence.

Many of these are interdisciplinary degrees with other Colleges at Northeastern.
Khoury College is committed to broadening participation in CS to increase diversity of thought and demographics. For undergraduates, Khoury offers over 40 combined majors (CS+X) and has recently launched the Center for Inclusive Computing, which has the mission to broaden participation in undergraduate computing programs nationally. At the graduate level Khoury is now scaling its successful Align MS in CS program for people who did not study CS as an undergraduate. This includes building a consortium of universities in the U.S. to offer similar programs.
Khoury College has grown rapidly over the last five years in response to increased student demand at the BS, MS, and PhD level and projects a continuation of this growth for the next few years. We invite you to join a fast-moving, ambitious college with an underlying mission that is best captured by the phrase 'CS for Everyone.'
