Diversity & Accessibility Resources

The Northwestern University community includes almost every culture and race around the globe.  Our students, faculty and staff have diverse needs, values, opinions, and a point of view that adds to a rich work and educational environment.

Northwestern is committed to fostering an environment of diversity and equal opportunity.  While much of this is accomplished through the community as a whole, leadership from the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access implements processes, procedures, and initiatives that make Northwestern University a leader in diversity and equality among other schools in the nation. Read the Provost's statement on diversity at Northwestern.

Northwestern provides resources to prevent discrimination, foster diversity, and assist community members with disabilities. 

Feel free to contact our office at eeo@northwestern.edu or by phone at (847) 491-7458 if you need a reasonable accommodation or access to University or local, community based organizations.
