Message from the Office of the Provost

At Northwestern, we are committed to being a good neighbor locally as well as a responsible citizen globally. These efforts include opening up our campus to youth seeking innovative and challenging opportunities to grow academically and athletically. 

We welcome to our Chicago and Evanston campuses programs that foster intellectual growth. Our goal is to help shape the next generation of scholars, athletes, researchers and academic leaders.

We have an obligation to these young people – as well as to their parents and to our communities – to foster a safe and responsible setting for this intellectual discovery. Everyone involved in these programs, including faculty, staff, students, parents and the individual participants, plays a role in ensuring a safe environment. And we hold you and ourselves accountable.

We hope that visitors to this web site find an easily accessible set of opportunities available for youth at Northwestern as well as our expectations for the safety and well-being of those programs. We encourage you to harness this information to further develop and improve learning experiences for the leaders of tomorrow.
