Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

During Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month (May), the Northwestern community acknowledges this nationally recognized month throughout the spring quarter. Programming for Heritage Month, which actually spans from April through early June, includes cultural shows, films, speakers, presentations, discussions and social gatherings. For the Asian/Asian American community at Northwestern, this part of the year is a time to celebrate culture, tradition, and talent.

Introducing the SES One Form

The SES One Form allows students to apply for multiple funding opportunities through one standard application. This ensures campus resources and opportunities are transparent and simple to access. Students share their financial narrative in one application, only one time. Visit the SES One Form portal today!

Message From Vice President for Student Affairs
