True Northwestern Dialogues (TNDs)

True Northwestern Dialogues (TNDs) series prompts every new student to explore issues related to self, connection to the community, navigation, and wellness and beyond. The TND series includes pre-TND requirements during the summer and programs during Wildcat Welcome.

Summer Online TNDs

All incoming students must complete pre-TNDs during the summer months prior to their arrival on campus including but not limited to the following topics: Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates, Alcohol Education for Undergraduates, Campus Safety at Northwestern, and Hazing Prevention 101. 

Wildcat Welcome TNDs 

Students will participate in True Northwestern Dialogues throughout Wildcat Welcome to help them prepare for their tenure at Northwestern. Students will attend each TND with their Peer Adviser group.  The TNDs will cover various topics important to our Northwestern community including Inclusion, Wellness, and Sexual Health. Students who do not attend each TND will have a hold placed on their course registration until all programs are completed.
