II.7. Diversity

In its service to the Northern Illinois regional corridor, NIU attracts a diverse student body. To this end, departments are uniquely situated to promote the university's commitment to diversity. Whether through faculty recruitment efforts, course offerings, accessible student advising, service learning opportunities (to name a few), part of the chair's responsibility is to guide his or her department's sustained effort to promote and enhance diversity. Links to a wide range of campus resources and diversity-related commissions/task forces are available at Office of Academic Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
