History of Undocumented Student Resources


Presidential Task Force

Understanding the importance of the recruitment, retention and success of undocumented students, in 2013 University President John G. Peters has commissioned the Presidential Task Force for the Support of Undocumented Students. At that time, NIU was viewed by many of its peers as a progressive institution that had already taken important steps to champion the needs of this important population. The development of this task force was an important component of that commitment, a commitment which continues today throughout our campus.
