Northwestern University Sitters & Tutor Network acts only as a “posting board” and does not conduct background checks on sitters or tutors, or those individuals seeking the assistance of Northwestern sitters and tutors. The responsibility for background checks, including resume verifications and references, rests exclusively with individual posting board users. The Northwestern Sitters & Tutor Network posting board is not a Northwestern program or service, and Northwestern is not responsible for any postings to the website. The fact that Northwestern hosts this posting board does not create an employment and/or contractual relationship of any kind between Northwestern and any posting board user, nor does Northwestern act as a guarantor of users or services provided.
