We Advocate for You

Student Affairs advocates and provides access to resources for Northeastern Illinois University students who may be experiencing sexual assault, domestic violence, homelessness, hunger, and other personal crisis to lessen any disruption in their education. We are committed to supporting the success of our diverse student population. It is our goal to maintain and develop meaningful partnerships with Northeastern student leaders, faculty, staff and community leaders to support students in need.

Student Affairs Resources

  • Coordinate response to crises and offer assistance to all affected students
  • Support and advocacy for victims and survivors of sexual violence
  • Provide guidance and referral to outside University resources
  • Student food pantry
  • Volunteer, internship, peer educator opportunities

Student Affairs provides a safe and confidential environment to hear student concerns. We provide resources and services in a manner that is nonjudgmental and empowering to students experiencing interpersonal violence and issues of food and home insecurity. We work together with students to find solutions to the issues that may be preventing them from continuing their studies at Northeastern. Please see a full list of Student Affairs resources on the Student Affairs Programs and Services page.
