Because…students who include engaged learning activities into their university experience are more likely to be successful in college and beyond!


Engaged learning gives students the opportunity to get real -world experience by taking the skills they learn in the classroom and applying them through activities such as

  • Research
  • Study abroad opportunities
  • Internships
  • Service-learning opportunities
  • Volunteer activities

These opportunities also help students get connected on campus and in the community by helping them build relationships with fellow students, faculty, staff and the greater NIU community.

The skills gained through engaged learning activities will help students get noticed by future employers and help them stand out from the crowd.
