Government Relations

The office of government relations is Northern Illinois University’s primary liaison with the state and federal governments. Through the Office of the President, government relations establishes the policy and legislative priorities for the university and represents NIU students, faculty and staff in Washington, D.C. and Springfield with offices in both locations.

If you would like to become more involved in advocacy efforts, we can provide you with resources, help you make connections and more. Whether you’re traveling to Springfield or Washington, D.C., or staying on campus, we can help you get connected and informed.
