Community and Business


Welcome to your one-stop resource for accessing NIU programs, services and events.

Community Engagement is the collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.

Are you an area resident, business owner, or employee of a not-for-profit organization? NIU has strong ties to its host communities, and offers many services, resources and events to area residents and organizations. Browse this page to learn more!
