Although it will have a different look and feel this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers are planning for a robust conversation with President Morton Schapiro.

"This event is a forum for Northwestern leadership during a very challenging time," said NUSAC Chair Nate Daigle. "And we hope to highlight issues and questions of great importance to the University community."

After his opening remarks, President Schapiro will be joined by Interim Provost Kathleen Hagerty and Senior Vice President for Business and Finance Craig Johnson for a Q&A session.

Questions are being gathered by NUSAC ahead of the event. If questions arise during or after the event, staff are encouraged to submit theirs to NUSAC via email at
