CLAS Advisory Council and Friends
The College of Liberal Arts & Sciences Advisory Council was established in 2001. The council is made up of dedicated alumni and friends of the CLAS. In October of 2015, the CLAS Advisory Council voted to create a common giving opportunity and to ask for 100 percent participation from council members. After thoughtful discussion, the Council had agreed that the focus of the CLAS Advisory Fund will be to support students who are at the brink of graduation and success but may be at risk financially. The CLAS Advisory Council Fund assists students encountering financial obstacles to continuing their education by helping meet their last-minute financial needs. The CLAS Advisory Council will help provide deserving students with the opportunity to finish their education. As advisory council members, we are in the position to help current students become proud Huskie alumni. We will ask our recipients to do the same in the future as they are able. It is the hope of the CLAS Advisory Council that establishing this fund will financially assist, inspire, and encourage NIU students in the CLAS to continue to pursue their college degrees.
