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 university programs, SLD supports students as they enhance their University experience while contributing to our local and global communities.
Student Involvement and Student organizations represent the most visible and accessible avenue to student involvement. At Northeastern Illinois University there are over 75 student organizations to suit a variety of interests. You will find academic, social, cultural, religious and community service organizations to name a few. To get the most from your college experience it’s important that you make time to create a plan that integrates your academic pursuits and career interests to help determine the choices you make about the time you spend outside of class. Active involvement both in and out of class contributes to your learning experience. Additionally, involvement in out of class experiences can help you develop valuable leadership and organizational skills and contribute to your marketability. Student organizations are an integral part of the student life at NEIU as well as the reflection of the diverse interests and activities of our student community.
