Educate and Engage


Because students grow tremendously through an experiential curriculum, the NIU College of Education embeds diverse, real-world learning opportunities in our programs. We similarly place a great value on collaborating with schools, communities, agencies and businesses that expand local and global opportunities for learning, research, service and leadership.

Our "Educate and Engage" series offers many unparalleled experiences in which our students apply what they learn and are supported in their transition to professionals. The Educate series offers opportunities to our licensure candidates while our Engage series offers opportunities to our non-licensure students.

We're proud to offer these local, national and international experiences at no cost or very low cost to our College of Education students.
