Living into COMMUNITY FIRST — Fall on Campus

Regardless of what comes our way, NNU is committed to being Here for Good—providing the excellent education and incredible community for which we are known. We excitedly welcomed students back to campus Aug. 27-28 and are looking forward to an incredible fall semester learning, living and growing in community.

We are the first to acknowledge that some things look different this year. As we navigate an ever-changing global pandemic, all of us are experiencing new and creative ways to be respectful, humble and flexible as we put our Community First.

We are continuing to monitor all that is occurring with COVID-19 as well as reflecting upon, refining and adapting our plans to keep our community safe and healthy. Additionally, we are looking forward to spring semester and putting plans in place to keep our community on campus and thriving.

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. This summer they are re-envisioning their courses to allow for physical distancing and other safety precautions and to be 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 will encompass spiritual, social, residential and co-curricular activities that will encourage our community to flourish safely within the guidelines provided by health experts.
