Our Community

Come together as one Northwestern community, wherever you are.

Check in with other Wildcats, share your experiences and stay connected to the Northwestern community.

COVID-19 has changed how we learn and work, how we connect with each other, and how we go about our daily lives. While we are scattered across the country and globe and cannot be together on campus, technology can bridge the physical distance between us. 

Use this page as a resource for joining virtual gatherings and events, finding new ways to engage and more.

Community Conversations

A new series, Community Conversations, will have senior leaders invite students, faculty and staff to share their thoughts on public safety, well-being and equity. The series of six event will provide spaces for all members of the University community to have meaningful engagement and deep discussion on how to improve Northwestern.  

Participants in each session will include President Morton Schapiro, Provost Kathleen Hagerty, Senior Vice President for Business and Finance Craig Johnson and Vice President for Student Affairs Julie Payne-Kirchmeier.

This event is limited to 15 participants, excluding the senior leaders, to facilitate a small-group discussion. Additional potential participants will be placed on a wait list. Due to Illinois pandemic guidelines that limit indoor gatherings, events will be held remotely on Zoom.

How Our Community is Helping

Northwestern is contributing to the fight against COVID-19 and making an impact. In times of crisis, our community of faculty, students, staff and friends alike pull together to make a difference.
