The leadership of National Louis University is committed to expanding the historic legacy of education pioneer Elizabeth Harrison. NLU was never “just another college.” It was founded on principles of service, community and social justice that continue to be the focus of President Nivine Megahed, Ph.D., the11th president of the university, and her experienced administrative team. Our leaders are passionate advocates for adult higher education and firm believers in its equalizing and uplifting effect on families and communities. Their role is to “serve those who serve others” by providing the services and supportive learning environment for the highest degree of student success.
