Combining different disciplines, theory, and real-life practice is what we do in the Center for NGO Leadership and Development. Through the Community Leadership and Civic Engagement major, minor, and certificate we offer NIU students with all different talents, passions, and experiences the ability to learn about the nonprofit and NGO worlds and make a difference in their communities. We are supported by and collaborate with nonprofit communities both locally and regionally, and offer our students opportunities to explore diverse service organizations and find their niche in the world.


Dr. Alicia Schatteman's PSPA 301: Philanthropy and Volunteerism's class made this awesome video to highlight the amazing things they learned about the nonprofit sector!
