Prospective Students


As an institution, Northwestern is working towards developing more intentional relationships with Chicago and greater Indigenous communities. Student voices and activism have been central to the advancement of institutional commitments--we follow in their legacy as a growing community of learners, knowledge keepers, protectors, and advocates working towards cultivating meaningful change at Northwestern and beyond.
