We are one of the most diverse universities in the Midwest, helping students of all ages and backgrounds achieve their personal and professional goals.
A lot has changed in the past 130 years, but the mission of NLU remains the same: to provide a superior education that makes a difference. We serve more than 8,000 students at seven locations in Illinois and Florida. We work hard to improve schools and businesses through community partnerships and applied research. And we are proud of the 65,000 living alumni who are using their NLU education to serve others.
