About the Exhibit

This online exhibit was created in 2008 as a project of the Northeastern University Libraries, 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 constant 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 prediential and congressional proposals to cut student financial aid and to encourage students to actively protest any threats to their educational financing.
