About HSS

HSS is a program that strives to develop a peer network and provide support that enables students to engage in service work on campus and in the community. First-generation or low income students entering NIU for the first time are placed into teams with an upper classmen mentor. Teams then work with a site supervisors to provide regular service to their campus partner. In addition, students will attend campus wide service events and collaborate to plan off campus service projects. Monthly meetings will provide collaboration, training and reflection opportunities for students. At minimum, students will dedicate 300 hours to service work, mentoring, reflection and training opportunities. Upon completion of 300 hours of service, students will receive a tuition waiver of $1,132.
