Office Hours

Members of the Northern Illinois University community are partners with the NIU leadership in creating a positive NIU experience. With that in mind, President Freeman invites NIU faculty, staff, students, as well as alumni and community members, to meet with her during scheduled office hours. President Freeman welcomes respectful, open dialogue about NIU and working together to move NIU forward.

Meetings will be held in the President's Office, Altgeld Hall 300 and limited to 15 minutes. Meetings should typically include one person, but consideration for groups up to three will be made based on the topic. First-time participants will be given priority.

Questions regarding office hours may be directed to Liz Wright, ewright1@niu.edu, Executive Assistant to the President.
