A Message from Our Director

Dear Northwestern instructors, teaching assistants, students, and other colleagues,

We acknowledge the extraordinarily hard times we face, the intellectual and technical challenges, support of self and family, and especially the mental pressure and anxiety that educators at all levels may be experiencing while teaching and learning during this stressful time. We want to offer our support in multiple ways, and so in the coming days, we will provide multiple resources to support remote learning and teaching, in collaboration with NUIT and School of Professional Studies. For immediate support, please go to the NUIT Digital Learning website

In accordance with Federal, Illinois and Northwestern University guidelines, the Searle Center will not be holding any in-person events or meetings, and our building will not be open to visitors until further notice. We will be offering a variety of online sessions and webinars related to online teaching and learning, and we will still offer individual consultations and limited services. Instructors may also wish to consider principles of inclusive teaching in an online environment. We will seek to remain flexible, updating and adjusting our resources and offerings as the larger context may warrant.
