Welcome to Northeastern Illinois University, a comprehensive, state university serving approximately 11,000 commuter students. Dedicated to teaching, research, and public service, this university prides itself on excellent classroom instruction delivered by highly qualified faculty in an environment where technology is the key to a well-rounded education. Northeastern serves as an affordable educational and cultural resource for the northern metropolitan Chicago area, fulfilling an important role in Illinois higher education.
Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU) is dedicated to both excellence and access. The most important facets of the university's mission are to offer high quality undergraduate and graduate programs to a broad spectrum of students and to foster student growth and development. To these ends, the university attaches primary importance to excellence in teaching. Since program quality is enhanced by professional activities beyond the classroom on the part of the faculty, emphasis is also given to pure and applied research and to academic and public service.
Unique to Northeastern's mission are the two distinctive features of diversity and community partnerships. Because of its location in the Chicago metropolitan area, the university serves a population which is diverse in age, culture, language, and race. This diversity, a major asset, means that the academic programs utilize a variety of perspectives to enrich the teaching and learning experience and to prepare students for the multiculturalism which characterizes our society. The university's location also provides students and faculty with many opportunities to integrate field-based learning, research, and service with classroom instruction.
Northeastern Illinois University preserves the finest traditions of university education, augmented by active involvement in the metropolitan area, on behalf of the residents of Illinois.
The Northeastern Illinois University Foundation, chartered in 1969, seeks, accepts and administers charitable donations that are given to Northeastern to help it meet and augment its educational goals and student needs. Today, more than ever, the university's intellectual vitality and ability to meet the educational and financial needs of its students depends on the NEIU Foundation's success in raising funds.
