Office of the Treasurer

A message from Treasurer Husam Salem:

Welcome, Huskies!

It is with great pleasure that I will be serving as your Treasurer for the 2014-2015 academic year, and 2015 fiscal year. My passion has always been finances and budgeting, as well as the students of Northern Illinois University, which why I am very excited for this role. I am confident that the knowledge and experience I have gained through my time at Northern Illinois has prepared me to be the best Treasurer I can be.

Every full time fee-paying student at Northern Illinois is a member of the student body, and a percentage of those fees are directed to the Student Association to allow us to allocate funds to organizations on the campus to assist them in their efforts of making NIU the best possible experience. It is my duty to ensure these funds get allocated correctly and fairly to the organizations that are truly making NIU a better place to be.

The Deputy Treasurer, Michael Wilder, and I are truly dedicated to serving the NIU students. We believe that transparency is a key aspect of our positions and will be happy to answer any questions that students may have about funding, the budget process, or anything else for that matter. Please do not hesitate to contact me at with any questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to a great year and to meeting many great students on the journey.
