Northeastern Illinois University’s Student Leadership Development Office encourages the lifelong commitment to active citizenship and social responsibility for all students. Through our partnerships with community organizations, academic departments and programs on campus, SLD supports students as they enhance their University experience while contributing to our local and global communities.
