We seek to engage students at all Northeastern Illinois University locations to create and sustain an environment of inclusivity across cultures, socio-economic class, sexual orientation, gender and other social identities.
- Student Success: Foster a learning environment by providing support, thought-provoking educational experiences, and interactive learning opportunities that increase student engagement, retention and graduation.

- Advocacy: Represent the needs and concerns of historically underserved student identities in order to ensure access to opportunity throughout all aspects of campus life while eradicating structural barriers.
