Senator Kennedy & Student Aid at NU

Senator Kennedy & Student Aid at NU was created in 2008 as a project of the Northeastern University Archives and Special Collections Department, following Senator Kennedy’s visit to the University on March 17, 2008. The exhibit provides a brief overview of Senator Kennedy’s long relationship with Northeastern University and advocacy for student financial aid on behalf of all college students. The exhibit highlights his numerous visits to the University since 1985 to speak out against presidential and congressional proposals to cut student financial aid and to encourage students to actively protest any threats to their educational financing.
