Non-profit organization teams with NIU to increase its reach


The Northern Illinois Center for Non-Profit Excellence (NICNE) has joined forces with NIU Rockford to allow the organization to expand its reach.

NICNE has provided training, technical assistance and resources to non-profit organizations in the area.

“We’re all about innovation at NIU, so the idea of having social innovation a little more present in our NIU Rockford facility is very exciting to me,” said Dr. Rena Cotsones, for Northern Illinois University. “I know there will be great opportunities for research for student engagement and more community engagements with students and faculty.”

NICNE’s offices and programs have been housed at Rockford University for the last 14 years.
