The Graduate Colloquium Program

The Graduate Colloquium program was established in 1966 to bring scholars, artists, professionals and public figures to give presentations and performances at NIU. Events are arranged and coordinated by the Graduate Colloquium office and a department, division or center that is eligible for funding.  All events are open to the entire NIU community and the public.


To participate in the Graduate Colloquium program, read the proposal information and guidelines, complete the proposal form, and submit it for consideration to the Graduate Colloquium office.
