JV Resources

Accessing Slack and CampusGroups

The kellogg-mba Slack workspace is where all Full-Time and Evening and Weekend students communicate socially and for their courses. It's a great place to connect with clubs and student groups. CampusGroups is the events platform where you can sign up for virtual and in-person events hosted by student groups and administration. JVs of current Full-Time students can sign up for Slack and CampusGroups here. Submissions to this form are added to Slack and CampusGroups on a weekly basis.

Career Services for JVs


The Office of Student Life is able to assist JVs with career resources. We can support you with resume reviews, making connections through the Kellogg student, JV, and alumni network, as well as interview preparation or other career needs.

If you are interested in these resources, please send a brief summary of your background and/or career interests and an introduction to Armando Santana. This will help us determine how we can best be of assistance. Additionally, the JV Club has a page of resources for JVs who are searching for a career.

Accessing the Global Hub


All JVs are expected to abide by all Northwestern University COVID safety rules while on the Northwestern campus. Additionally, JVs visiting the Global Hub are required to complete the steps below:

Vaccination status:
Vaccinated JVs must submit their vaccination attestation via this form prior to coming to campus. If you are vaccinated, no further protocols are required to enter the Hub on a regular basis. If you are not vaccinated, then you will need to receive a negative COVID test within 72 hours of any event that you will be coming to campus for, as is required of students.

COVID Testing:
If you are not vaccinated, you will need to complete a rapid test within 72 hours of any event for which you plan to come to campus. Testing is available at the Jacobs Center on the Evanston campus from 9am-4pm, Monday-Friday. You or your student can also retrieve an at-home test kit from either the Jacobs Center or the Kellogg Student Experience Center (KGH 1391) and complete it at home. You will be required to show a negative test result to enter the building if you are not vaccinated. If you are vaccinated, you do not need to participate in regular COVID testing.

Finding Childcare and Kellogg Kids


Students can make use of childcare resources available from Northwestern here.

Kellogg Kids is the official Kellogg organization that provides a welcoming environment for partners and families of students. The goal of our club is to create a smooth life transition by providing a support network for the spouses of Kellogg students with children. Find them on CampusGroups and Slack.

Student Health Insurance


JVs and children of students are eligible for coverage under Northwestern's NU-SHIP insurance policy for graduate students. Find more information here.
