Search Process and Hiring

ADA (employees and visitors)

We help ensure that everyone receives fair and equal employment opportunities and academic decisions at NIU. We also make sure that employment and academic opportunities are accessible to all, including faculty, staff, students and visitors.

Affirmative action encourages organizations to hire and promote qualified individuals from groups that have been previously excluded from equal opportunity in employment. As NIU grows and continues to engage with the dynamic region that surrounds us, the diversity of our faculty and students will be one of our greatest resources. In partnership with the campus community, our office will help realize this potential and advance the university's mission.

Implicit Bias Training

Implicit bias training is now required for members of search committees for faculty and supportive professional staff (SPS) positions.
