Northeast Regional Contacts



Our application review process is grounded in a holistic approach coupled with a commitment to college access. This means that understanding our applicants’ context is paramount to our work. To further this understanding, our admission directors are on regional teams. By focusing on a particular area of the world, we gain better insight into your high school and community settings.

We also hope these regional teams make it easier for you to find answers to your questions about admissions. Within a team, each member serves as a contact for a specific geographic area. To find your admissions contact, identify the area below where your school is located. And please know that there is no pressure to reach out, as contacting our office has no impact on your application review or admission decision!

While we won’t be traveling to your area this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are hosting a number of virtual Northwestern Comes to You events specifically for students from your region. Click here for more information about dates and to register for an upcoming event.
