Bold Futures

Bold Futures logoAs we prepare for our students for their bold futures, so too are we embarking on our own bold future for Northern Illinois University.  In the three short months President Baker has been at the helm, it is clear that this phrase, in action, will be a hallmark of his presidency. 

Since his arrival, he has engaged the university community—students, faculty, staff , alumni and community members—in four areas of strategic focus and institutional priorities. His “Bold Futures Workshops” have focused on ways to unleash and maximize NIU’s human and financial resources to enable success in the following areas:

  • Student Career Success
  • Thriving Communities
  • NIU Financial and Program Viability
  • Ethically Inspired Leadership
