Who We are

Network of Nations (NofN) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that links NIU (Northern Illinois University) and community internationals with each other, and with volunteers from churches in the DeKalb Co., Illinois area.

Many internationals face the challenges of cultural adjustment, language difficulties, isolation and loneliness. Approximately 1300 international scholars and students along with their families are enrolled at NIU every year. NofN is committed to extending hospitality and practical assistance, and offering them a caring community for friendship and cross-cultural understanding.

Network of Nations serves internationals from over 120 countries, many of whom return to places of influence within their communities and countries. Many continue the personal relationships which began here.
