Marketing & Branding Subcommittee 

A campus-wide branding and marketing subcommittee has been working towards identifying a common theme and message during 2010 around which the university's communications efforts can be framed. 

Deans, faculty, staff and communications professionals here at NIU have devoted countless hours to define a framework around which a campus dialogue can be held that will help shape NIU's brand identity over the next few years.
