Since its beginnings in 2002, the Center for P-20 Engagement has collaborated with NIU and community partners on activities that improve education and bring innovation to schools, community colleges, workplaces and other community settings.
Our focus on engagement requires relationships between the university and its partners that serve all of the partners. We learn from each other, discover new knowledge together and enjoy the fruits of collaboration. Benefits include meeting community needs, increasing economic vitality and improving quality of life across the region.
