About the Commission

The Presidential Commission on the Status of Minorities was established by the university president to assure that Northern Illinois University consistently and comprehensively will reflect, sponsor, mandate and totally support action designed to enhance the status of ethic minorities. The goal is to advise the president on the status of minority students, faculty and staff and make recommendations to improve the quality of life and opportunity for ethic minorities at NIU.
