The Office of Student Engagement has a new name and a new home.

The office, which oversees programs such as Undergraduate Research, Themed Learning Communities and Service Learning, is now known as the Office of Student Engagement and Experiential Learning.

The name was changed to more precisely reflect the objectives of the program, says Julia Spears, who has led the office for the past two years.

“We have a new name, but our objective is still the same: to help students reach their full potential and further academic participation through our many unique programs,” Spears said. “The programs we coordinate make it possible for students to be involved in their own education and truly complete the college experience.”

The department recently relocated to new offices in Room 110 of the Chick Evans Field House. For more information, call (815) 753-8154 or e-mail engage@niu.edu.
