Students may wear lots of hats in their life outside of school: spouse, partner, parent, supervisor, employee, community leader. At NU it is important to embrace the role of learner and understand that your relationship with faculty is one of student and teacher. It can be hard at times to move back into the role of novice, especially if you have been tasked in a role of expert in other areas of your life. Embracing the role of student can help place you in a relationship with faculty that allows for you to learn from them and make your own journey towards expert.
All faculty at NU have a doctorate degree. This is an amazing opportunity for students to learn from people in their given field that have reached the pinnacle of expertise.
