Student Assistance & Support Services (SASS)

SASS team member speaking with a student

The SASS team assists students by coordinating campus and community resources to promote well-being when dealing with complex issues.  SASS members are available to consult with students, faculty, staff, families and community members/providers to determine the best approach for a student's current situation.

Life events can interfere with a student’s ability to be successful at Northwestern. When a challenging situation arises, a student or family may find it difficult to navigate the many resources and services that are available at NU.

Our goal is to remove obstacles by creating a well-coordinated network of services that allow students to close the gap on any potential barriers to academic, co-curricular and social well-being.

Meeting with a SASS team member is often a good starting place.
