About Us

Our Mission

Established at Northeastern Illinois University in 1968, Project Success is a recruitment and educational services program that has historically and continues to serve African-American and first generation college students who demonstrate academic potential, but do not meet general university admissions requirements.

The program is committed to:

  • Support and monitor a student's first two years at NEIU by assisting them in defining and then accomplishing their personal academic goals.
  • Maximize student participants' potential to benefit from the academic experience and university environment.

Our staff provides participants with one on one help in an effort to improve their preparedness toward declaration of a major and overall degree completion.
