Statement Against Racism & Police Brutality

We join others across the nation in grieving the violent death of George Floyd who represents the latest of many who have lost their lives in a relentless series of violence toward Black identified individuals. We condemn any form of hate and we stand in solidarity with all members of our community who are affected by racial violence.  

CAPS has compiled a list of resources to help us through this challenging time. For more of the CAPS Statement and these resources, visit our Coping with Recent Events page.

Coronavirus Update

Northwestern University is carefully monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak (commonly known as coronavirus) to best advocate for the health and safety of our campus community. The University advises that all community members take necessary precautions to protect themselves from this virus. To follow Northwestern updates, please visit our COVID-19 information page.
