CHARLOTTE – Mayor Anthony Foxx on Monday helped unveil the first regional campus of Northeastern University.

The Boston institution known for its global research will offer only graduate courses, which will integrate online and classroom learning. Courses in business, engineering, health and computer sciences will be taught by existing Northeastern faculty members.

Foxx believes the campus helps fulfill an important need in the Charlotte community.

"Health care is growing as a sector in this community and this university is coming to help us grow that sector. Think about the fact that technology is going to continue expanding and this university is working to prepare people for those types of careers. They are fulfilling a niche that we need and we're grateful to have them," he said.

Northeastern University plan to open its second regional campus in Seattle next year. ClientIP: UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
