Anthropology professor Mitch Irwin (left) and biology professor Karen Samonds perform a health check on a lemur during a July research project in Madagascar. They lead summer a NIU study abroad program on the island. “Hands-on experience in the field is critical as a complement to traditional instruction for ensuring student career success,” Irwin said.

NIU President Doug Baker and Provost Lisa Freeman will explain program prioritization and how it will affect university programs like those pictured and employees at town hall meetings today.
