University Honors Program
The NIU Honor's Program Is Thousands Strong!

At the University Honors Program, we are successful because of the continued support of alumni and friends. To help us ensure future honors students have the resources and engaged learning opportunities to make them successful at NIU and beyond, please consider donating to one of the program's top priorities (all donations are tax deductible). Your donation will support Honors students to complete co-curricular experiences such as alternative spring break trips. Making these experiences affordable for all students is a core goal and value of the Honors Program. 


Join us by supporting one or more Honors students to achieve their goals this year. Go HUSKIES!
