We Advocate for You
The Student Advocacy Program 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. The Student Advocacy Program and staff 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.
- Coordinate response to crises and offer assistance to all affected students

- Guidance and referral to outside University resources
- Student food pantry
- Volunteer, internship, peer educator opportunities
The Student Advocacy Program provides a safe and confidential environment to hear student concerns. The program provides resources and direct service that is non-judgmental 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 thier studies at Northeastern.
