“Giving back is so important to me, and it is very meaningful to be able to make these gifts while I’m still here to enjoy it. I hope my gifts will inspire others to do the same, and provide support for Northeastern long into the future.”
Professor Emeritus Bernard J. Brommel, Ph.D., is truly a champion of giving. He is the Northeastern Illinois University Foundation’s first million-dollar donor, the first donor to name a building through a philanthropic gift (Bernard J. Brommel Hall), and a founding member of the Founders Society, those donors who have remembered the University in their estate plans. Brommel has created 27 named scholarships and awards at Northeastern. Each scholarship title includes names of honorees who are alumni, faculty, colleagues, and friends with whom Brommel has worked. Every year, these Brommel scholarships provide substantial support to students in a wide variety of disciplines.
