Faculty & Staff Assistance

NU Life Matters

Northwestern University offers a free and confidential professional service to its faculty, staff, and members of their families who need assistance with personal issues.  For more information, see the NU Life Matters webpage.

NU Cares

For faculty and staff, Northwestern isn't just a workplace, it's a community. And in times of crisis, a community offers support. NU Cares is a new fund at Northwestern that allows faculty and staff an opportunity to help a colleague in need. Employees may donate to the NU Cares fund by cash, check, or payroll deduction.
