Parent Relations

Parent Relations team at University of NorthwesternParent Relations - connecting your home to ours.

Our goal is to be a resource for you as you seek to stay in touch with your student, keep up to date with the happenings at Northwestern, and connect you with people and departments who can address specific issues and concerns. 

As parents, you have laid an essential foundation for your sons and daughters, and we want to partner with you on all levels as you release them into God's care and watch them build upon that foundation.
