Global Presence


NIU is a global institution with academic, research, and familial ties to a number of countries around the globe. Parallel to these ties, our department also has a strong international presence -- with faculty hailing from countries such as South Korea, South Africa, United Kingdom, and Venezuela. Additionally, we have established research collaborations, workshops, and exchanges with other countries such as Belize, Canada, China, Finland, Germany, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, and Turkey. As a result, our educational philosophy combines academic and service-based programs that encourage students and faculty to become more aware and more socially responsible citizens of tomorrow's world and work jointly to help solve problems -- both globally and domestically.
