Crossing Boundaries, Transforming Lives
The Northern Illinois University College of Business approach to transformative innovation is through collaboration that crosses boundaries - disciplinary, cultural, age, time, distance, role, organizational and socioeconomic. Our approach will catapult breakthrough ideas and people into extraordinary business success stories.
The generosity of our donors helps continue a long legacy that defines the Huskie spirit enabling all students, no matter their background, to be well prepared and launch careers that cross boundaries. Experiences in the College of Business are crafted deliberately and allow students to cross the boundary of theory and practice.
With your support, the NIU College of Business seeks to be at the forefront of innovative business education and a catalyst for business innovation in the region. When making your gift today, please consider supporting one of our areas of innovation within the College of Business.
The COB Creativity Lab
Our vision for launching a Creativity Lab is designed to engage and impact every student on campus. This innovative, collaborative space will facilitate and support the development of creativity and empathy skills among students, faculty, staff, alumni, business partners and the local community in an effort to solve real-world problems and change lives. A generous donor has offered to match all gifts to our priority of innovation dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000.00.
Your contribution is an investment in our students’ success. We are thankful for your generosity and support of our funding priorities.
