NIU to host Northern PACT Awareness Week

February 22, 2013

Northern PACT logoNorthern PACT Awareness Week, scheduled from Monday, Feb. 25, through Sunday, March 3, provides an opportunity for the NIU campus community to support and contribute to an environment that is:

JUST: where all people are valued and supported while they learn from the diversity of our community

CARING: where the well-being of all is supported, and service to others is encouraged

OPEN: where freedom of expression is welcomed, and others are respected

DISCIPLINED: where group members accept their responsibility, and expectations guide behavior for the common good

CELEBRATIVE: where traditions are honored, and both past and new rituals are embraced
