Student Support Services

Faculty and Staff

Nebraska Wesleyan faculty and staff are invested in our students’ academic progress and personal growth. A friendly face, a listening ear and a caring approach can often help our students get in touch with the resources they need. CARE Connect, NWU’s student support system, is an early alert and intervention program for students designed to help identify those students who may need extra assistance in achieving academic success. When a report is made, a member of the CARE Connect Response Team will reach out.

If you have any questions about CARE Connect, please contact Candice Howell by email at chowell [at]

Students and Parents

Students and parents who are concerned about a student are encouraged to report their concerns here. Students are permitted to refer a friend about whom they might have concerns, or a parent to refer a son or daughter. This referral may be anonymous.
