Center for Nonprofit and NGO Studies
Combining different disciplines, theory, and real-life practice is what we do in the Center for Nonprofit and NGO Studies. Through the Nonprofit and NGO Studies 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.
Making a Difference
Read how our students have been quietly making a big difference in the lives of people across DeKalb County by working paid internships with area nonprofits.
Join us as we explore topics and issues affecting our local towns, villages, cities, and neighborhoods. All Things Local podcast is hosted by Alicia Schatteman, Ph.D.
