Living into COMMUNITY FIRST:  Spring On Campus 

Regardless of what comes our way in 2021, NNU is committed to being Here for Good, providing the excellent education and incredible community for which we are known.

We look forward to continuing to learn, live and grow in community as we return to campus this spring, carrying with us all we have learned from our successful in-person fall semester. COVID has required us to find new and innovative ways to maintain the incredible NNU experience—and it took our entire community working together—but our students, faculty and staff agree that it’s worth it to be able to be on campus!

As we launch into a new year, we will continue to navigate an ever-changing global pandemic and find creative ways to be respectful, humble and flexible as we put our Community First. Our leadership teams continue to monitor new developments with COVID as we reflect, refine and adapt our plans to keep our community safe and healthy.

Continue to check this page regularly for modifications and updates to our plan.

Please contact with any questions you may have. This email inbox is being monitored and we will reply to you as soon as possible.

Health & Safety

As has always been the case, the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and neighboring community continues to be our priority in the plans we are making. We are closely monitoring guidelines and recommendations by leading health experts, the CDC and state and local officials and integrating them into our plans.


Educational Value

NNU faculty are gifted educators who are extremely experienced in creating a learning rich experience. They have re-envisioned their courses to allow for physical distancing and other safety precautions and are ready for a variety of possible scenarios that will allow for a seamless quality education for every student.


Vibrant Community

Community is the heart of an NNU experience. We are working diligently to make plans that encompass spiritual, social, residential and co-curricular activities that encourage our community to flourish safely within the guidelines provided by health experts.
