Northern Illinois University

School Description

Northern Illinois University traces it roots back to when it was chartered in 1895 and opened its doors as the Northern Illinois State Normal School whose sole mission was to train college-educated teachers. Through the years, then-Illinois Gov. John Peter Altgeld expanded the 'normal school' to address the need for a quality public school. The continuous growth of the Institute after the second World War and the wars in Korea and Vietnam led to it becoming the Northern Illinois State College in 1955, and the Northern Illinois University two years after.

Today, student enrollment is over 20,000, more than half of which are non-whites and it employs over 3,000 faculty and staff members in its 756-acre campus which boasts of 64 major buildings and a student-housing capacity of approximately 5,000. Northern Illinois University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association.
