Keep Engaging

At NIU, we've always understood that we're better together. University and community. Experts and practitioners. Teachers and learners. Partners and, well, partners.

Engagement is all about bringing people together around challenges and opportunities, sharing resources, creating solutions, and moving forward together. During this difficult time, we'll continue to do these things. We'll continue to collaborate while keeping our distance. Our partnerships will look different, but we'll continue to identify needs, leverage our collective resources and expertise, and develop solutions together.

On this site, you'll find information about NIU’s many engagement opportunities and tools for staying connected. You'll also find resources to help you through our current challenges and links to sources of information about the issues we all care about.

Be safe, stay healthy and keep engaging!
