Invest in Our Students

The Division of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management touches every student's life in ways many people don't realize. From residence and dining halls to career services, multicultural experiences, extracurricular activities and health services, we do it all!

Our goal is to make a student's college experience the best it can be. In fact, our mission is to "Help students from admission to graduation." That's why we offer countless programs and services that will enhance students' in-class learning, prepare them to become tomorrow's leaders, help them build relationships, and ensure that their graduation goal is achieved.

If you have fond memories of your time at NIU or if you're a parent who has watched your son or daughter grow and develop while enrolled here, or if you are an NIU friend, we invite you to learn more about and support our current initiatives:

  • NIU Leadership Academy
  • Emergency Student Aid Fund
  • Discovery Fund
  • Centennial Scholarship

Giving to Student Affairs & Enrollment Management is an opportunity for you to invest in our students and shape their time on campus and their future success. Thank you for considering us as your philanthropic choice and for making a difference in the lives of NIU students.
