The Office of Academic Development provides quality academic and support service programs
for Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU) students.
This office works to establish or to continue liaisons between all support services within the University; encourages innovative approaches to instruction; assists under- prepared students; participates in liaison activities with other institutions and supports services and programs for entering student populations. Student and advisory councils provide suggestions and feedback on the activities and programs of the office.
The Office of Academic Development also coordinates a series of annual Heritage Conferences where workshops and presentations provide a forum for active discussion and engagement on different issues to facilitate the acquisition of knowledge, abilities, and attitudes, which will form a foundation for life-long learning among our students. Most importantly, through these Heritage Conferences, we honor and value the diversity of the many voices in our community.
Academic Development is responsible for the following areas: Academic Advisement Center, Accessibility Center, Assessment & Testing Center, English Language Program, Learning Center, Math Development Program, Proyecto Pa'Lante, Project Success, Reading Development Program, Summer Transition Program, and University Seminar.
