Programs and Communities
SES’s website, programs, workshops, and other events inform students about the range of resources they can use and the many connections they can make to support their success at Northwestern.
- SES hosts an open house on the first day of Wildcat Welcome and partners closely with the Quest+ Student Group and NU AUC, Northwestern’s undocumented/DACA student group.
- Compass is our cohort-based mentorship program that connects first-year students with upper-level mentors.
- Our SES One Form is an application portal that allows students to apply for multiple funding opportunities through one standard application.
SES, Multicultural Student Affairs, and Social Justice Education work in partnership as components of Campus Inclusion and Community. The Office of Undergraduate Education also partners with SES, and together we connect students with academic resources and support. In addition, SES can help you engage with all six undergraduate schools, Academic Support and Learning Advancement, and the Offices of Undergraduate Research, Fellowships, and Health Professions Advising.
SES programs and opportunities are announced throughout the year. Connect with SES to discover everything your first-stop shop has to offer!
