Returning to Campus

Northwestern continues to make the safety and well-being of our students, staff, and faculty our priority as we move into our Spring 2021 semester.

As we work to mitigate the COVID-19 virus on campus and respond to its evolving effects, we have made some changes to how we operate. By implementing safety protocols and procedures that have been significantly shaped by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Minnesota Office of Higher Education (MOHE), and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), we can join together as a community to reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus on our campus. Our knowledge and understanding of the COVID-19 virus continue to evolve. As a result, our policies and plans will be reviewed and revised accordingly as more information becomes available.

As we follow these protocols and procedures, we will exercise wisdom that is shaped by our faith. We trust God’s sovereignty as we experience the hazards that are common throughout life. We look forward to the upcoming fall semester full of faith, not allowing fear to paralyze us to inaction.
