Community Conversations: A forum for discussion on improving Northwestern

Northwestern this month will launch a new series of Community Conversations where senior leaders invite students, faculty and staff to share their thoughts on public safety, well-being and equity.

The series of six events, beginning Monday, Nov. 23, will provide spaces for all members of the University community to have meaningful engagement and deep discussion on how to improve Northwestern.

Due to new Illinois pandemic guidelines that limit indoor gatherings, events in November and December will be held remotely. The schedule is:

  • Nov. 23, 5:30-6:15 p.m. with all students (remote)
  • Dec. 1, 4:30-5:15 p.m. with faculty and staff in Evanston (remote)
  • Dec. 9, 4-4:45 p.m. with faculty and staff in Chicago (remote)
  • Jan. 7, 4-4:45 p.m. with faculty and staff in either Evanston or Chicago (remote)
  • Jan. 21, 5:30-6:15 p.m. with students in Evanston (in-person, after Wildcat Wellness)
  • Feb. 4, 4-4:45 p.m. with students in Chicago (in-person, after Wildcat Wellness)

Participants in each session will include President Morton Schapiro, Provost Kathleen Hagerty, Senior Vice President for Business and Finance Craig Johnson and Vice President for Student Affairs Julie Payne-Kirchmeier.
