Collaborate. Innovate. Learn.

NIU’s Center for P-20 Engagement brings together partners from NIU and across the region in mutually beneficial relationships to increase educational success. Across the continuum from preschool (P) to graduate school and lifelong learning (20), our activities foster innovation in schools and communities through hands-on activities for kids, educators and families; professional development for teachers; and regional networking to improve college and career readiness. 

  • NIU STEAM Works sparks curiosity, creativity, collaboration and critical thinking
  • Northern Illinois Regional P-20 Network facilitates innovative education initiatives to promote college and career readiness for students of all ages
  • Professional Development Collaborative delivers excitement and innovations from the experts in the P-20 Center and across the university
