NIU Cares Day
NIU Cares Day is a campus-wide day of community service. Volunteers comprised of NIU students, faculty, staff and alumni come together once a year to complete projects that benefit DeKalb County’s not-for-profit organizations and community agencies as a way of thanking the community for their support of the institution and its mission. NIU Cares Day will take place on April 21, 2018.
Faculty, staff and alumni have the opportunity to participate as project site leaders. Learn more and register today!
NIU student volunteers are the heart of NIU Cares Day. Students can participate individually or within teams. Each team must have a designated team leader who will attend a mandatory team leader orientation. Get more info about the registration process and team leader orientation.
