Student Affairs is responsible for students’ lives outside the classroom and all students are touched in some way by Student Affairs. We provide services, campus environment, and experiences that enrich students’ lives every day at Northwestern.

Your gift to Student Affairs has an immediate and positive impact on every student on campus. Whether you support a specific program or initiative within the Division of Student Affairs or you give unrestricted resources for Vice President Patricia Telles-Irvin’s highest priorities, your gift helps create a supportive environment where students learn to be leaders and role models and develop life-long connections to Northwestern.  Student Affairs touches the life of every student whether through their residence halls, student activities, counseling services, internships, Norris Center, and more. Please make a gift now.
