We believe all undergraduate students can benefit from participating in research and other engaged learning activities. No matter your major or background, there’s a unique scholarly or artistic experience for you at NIU. By getting involved, you’ll build relationships, increase your problem-solving and communication skills, and become a more knowledgeable citizen and leader.

Faculty and Staff Involvement

We support faculty and staff as they help students with research and engaged learning. We’d be happy to give a presentation on our programs to your class or student organization, and we invite you to get involved by mentoring a student on a project.
