Division of Student Affairs

Building just, healthy, and meaningful student learning experiences.

Welcome to Student Affairs

As students navigate their time at Northwestern University, the Division of Student Affairs is here to support and engage with students every step of the way. From the moment students are admitted to Northwestern, to the day they cross the stage during graduation, we help students learn about themselves and their purpose, engage with and build community, make long-standing connections, navigate challenges and seek out help, and prepare for the future. In short, we help students thrive. 
A student’s time at Northwestern is full of possibilities—academically and beyond. More than 30 departments across the Student Affairs engage students throughout their Northwestern experience, provide resources, and help them develop important skills both in and out of the classroom. We provide services that are essential to a positive student experience and offer expertise in health and well-being; diversity, equity, and inclusion; and student engagement and involvement.
