Welcome to NIU

We’re glad you’re here!

You’re joining a team of more than 3,000 people who work hard every day to make NIU a welcoming, supportive environment for our students and fellow employees. We’ll help you feel informed and comfortable as you start your new job.

Guiding You to Success

Around your hire date, a representative from our Leading Employees to Success (L.E.T.S.) Program will contact you. This program will provide support as you transition into your new job and beyond.

We’ll also invite you to attend a welcome event just for new employees. You’ll learn more about benefits and perks, explore university resources and get tips on adjusting to your role in higher education. It’s a great opportunity to meet other new employees and hear directly from NIU leaders as you discover what it means to be a Huskie.
