Northeastern Illinois University


Founded in 1867, Northeastern Illinois University has a rich tradition of educational innovation and prides itself on preparing teachers and administrators who make a difference in Chicago. That tradition continues to this day and has expanded to include an array of academic disciplines, allowing the University to embrace fully the community in which it resides.


Northeastern offers over 70 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, plus a wide range of certificate programs to choose from.


NEIU has a rich breadth of research, scholarship, and creative activities that are the result of the engaged efforts of a wide array of faculty, staff, administrators, and students. The various research offices at NEIU and the Research and Creative Activities Advisory Group, whose members serve as liaisons to the broader Northeastern community, are here to support those activities.
