The Campus Activities Board is unable to provide Mid Level Funding for the 2014 - 2015 academic year. We do offer co-sponsorship of programs.   If you are looking to co-sponsor an event with CAB, please contact us at cab@niu.edu.  Contacting CAB at least a semester in advance of your anticipated event improves the likelihood of a co-sponsorship.   

However if you are interested in mid-level funding please contact the Student Association by email at: studentassociation@niu.edu or give them a call at 815-753-0483.
