Visiting Scholars

Over the past five years, the Institute has hosted more than 60 visiting scholars from five continents. A community of current and past visitors enhances the intellectual environment at Northwestern.

Meet the scholars

Become a scholar

Our faculty affiliates use the program to reciprocate and strengthen relationships with colleagues and universities around the world. Visitors are expected to participate in the intellectual life of the Institute, including in our Faculty & Fellows Colloquium (Fridays during the academic year, 12–1 p.m.)
