High Impact Practices - NIU - PLUS (Progressive Learning in Undergraduate Studies)

Curricular Reform

Why High Impact Practice and Experiential Learning Options?

National data indicate that such experiences increase retention and graduation rates. To foster our students, NIU can better employ these experiences by creating an environment where students invest time and effort, interact with faculty and peers about substantive matters, experience diversity, respond to more frequent feedback, reflect about and integrate learning, and discover the relevance of learning through real-world applications.
