Our Mission

The mission of the Campus Activities Board shall be to provide the Northern Illinois University community with cultural, social, educational and entertainment programs that are responsive to the diverse needs of the university community.

Our Structure

The Campus Activities Board is composed of Northern Illinois University's very own students. Students can participate in CAB by serving on one of the committees, or as one of ten coordinators or by being elected into one of four executive positions.

The Campus Activities Board is made of six different programming committees committed to bringing students a variety of programs. The committees include:

  • Classic Events
  • Performing Arts
  • Huskie Traditions
