NU Listens

Nipissing University cares about students and their success. We aim to recognize students who are in distress and ensure they receive the proper support.

NUListens is a Nipissing University Program that informs students that we care about their wellbeing, invites students to seek out supportive helpers, and provides opportunities for campus wide dialogue about mental health and wellness issues.

Students are able to identify faculty and staff who are participating in the NUListens program by an NUListens sign in their workspace. These individuals are willing to listen to student concerns, are knowledgeable about resources available, and can help students connect to professional assistance.

Student mental health is important. We are here to listen.
