Support NIU’s CLAS today and prepare the scholars and leaders of tomorrow!

 

Your gifts to support CLAS students help prepare tomorrow’s scholars and leaders in society; the next scientist to make a world-changing discovery, the next computer engineer to develop ground-breaking technology, or public leader to address society’s most pressing needs.

 

First-generation college student, Cassandra PilcherYour support helps students like Cassandra Pilcher, a first-generation college student double majoring in psychology and sociology with big goals including closing the accessibility gap for the deaf and hard of hearing in mental health services.

 

"I’m a strong believer in everyone having a college that is a right fit for them; luckily, NIU was that for me… I have two years left at NIU, and I plan to make the most of them.”

 

Students like Cassandra will accomplish their dreams with your gift today.

 

When you support CLAS or any one of our departments or centers, you provide funds for scholarships, study abroad, research travel and equipment, lab and classroom renovations, and more. Your gifts directly support transformative experiences.

 

Because today is NIU’s Day of Giving, a number of donors have issued special challenges to amplify the impact of your gift. Check out the many challenges and join in the excitement!

 

You can be their hero! Support tomorrow’s scholars and leaders today!
