"As a faculty member at NLU, I feel very fortunate to interact every day with an inspiring community of colleagues and students. NLU fosters a culture that encourages a love of learning and a passion for teaching, and I appreciate the opportunity that I have been given to contribute in a meaningful way to the lives of my students, to my profession and to a university that has been my home for more than 20 years."

"...to student success. I have seen this through my participation in the general education redesign team. Every course is being created with a learner centered approach to improve the student experience. We are also accountable for the achievement of student learning thought the assessment of university, program and course level outcomes. This contributes to an environment of continuous improvement."
“NLU continuously lives out its values through providing innovative education that respects and engages our Chicagoland communities at multiple levels. Much of this work occurs through experiential teaching and learning opportunities faculty develop with collaborating schools, businesses, and organizations; as well as university-level educational partnerships with similarly innovative and effective organizations like El Valor. As a Community Psychologist, I am able to participate in community service and develop community-based research opportunities for students to practice putting theory into action so that our communities may be better served by existing relevant literature and research.”
