Staff and Faculty

We provide information and guidance to departments and beneficiaries on employment visas and employment-based permanent residency by assisting with both filing and maintenance of status. Employment-based immigration is complicated and seemingly ever-changing. Our staff is diligent in keeping up to date with federal regulations and current trends.

Our department processes H-1B petitions on behalf of qualified current and future NIU employees, we assist employees seeking TN status and we hold signatory responsibility for employment-based permanent residency.
