NIU and the community are evaluating the ongoing health crisis surrounding COVID-19. NIU Cares Day 2021 is still being evaluated. Once a decision is made, we will update this page. If you have questions, please contact Meg Junk at

NIU Cares Day is a campus-wide day of community service and part of the #UnleashHuskiePride events occurring at NIU in April. Volunteers comprised of NIU students, faculty, staff and alumni come together once a year to complete projects that benefit DeKalb County's not-for-profit organizations and community agencies as a way of thanking the community for their support of the institution and its mission.

Through your participation, NIU students, alumni, faculty and staff help build a stronger relationship with the NIU community.
