We offer 60+programs in a variety of convenient delivery models that allow you the flexibility you need to pursue your education—on-campus, online, and at partner sites.


For more than 125 years, NLU has been proudly delivering holistic professional preparation and contemporary academic experience. Our mission is to prepare students to lead in their professions and communities, and we encourage excellence in the pursuit of career and personal goals.


NLU’s roots date back to education pioneer and social reformer Elizabeth Harrison having the then radical idea to open a kindergarten training school to promote early childhood education. Harrison’s groundbreaking work helped launch the National Parent-Teacher Association and the Head Start program, and the National College of Education (NCE) became the first university in Illinois to offer a four-year teaching degree. In 1990, thanks to a large donation from philanthropist Michael W. Louis, the school expanded to offer courses in business and arts and science and was renamed National Louis University.


Today, National Louis has more than 7,500 current students and 65,000 living alumni elevating their professions and communities. The University operates five Chicago area campuses and has national and international with locations in Florida and Poland. We invite you to explore our website at www.nl.edu to learn about the richness of National Louis—its programs, its people, and the diversity of experience and ideas that keep our community motivated and energized.
