About David and Barbara Roux

The Roux Institute is named in recognition of the generous founding investment made by David and Barbara Roux. The Rouxs understand the societal challenges posed by rapid technological change and why those challenges require a new model of higher education.

They teamed up with Northeastern as the institute’s founding academic partner because they believe in the power of the university’s distinctive model, which makes employers vital partners in both learning and research. And they see the opportunity ahead for the Roux Institute to transform Maine’s economy by making it a hub for innovation in experiential artificial intelligence, digital engineering, and advanced life sciences.

The Roux Institute gives us an opportunity to have deeper engagement with existing businesses—and to expand new ones. We're building a talent pool that responds to the needs of tech companies.
