About National Louis University
NLU: A CHICAGO LEADER IN HIGHER EDUCATION SINCE 1886
In late nineteenth century Chicago, two extraordinary women with vision, a passion for education and a determination to make a difference in the lives of our children laid the foundation for what is today National-Louis University (NLU).
Urban education pioneer and community activist Elizabeth Harrison, together with Edna Dean Baker, created a modern university-one with deep roots in Chicago and a reputation that today extends far beyond the borders of the city it calls home.
NLU is a university committed to innovation and best practices in urban teaching and graduate education. A university that excels in creating learning communities where adult students thrive. A university with a history of access to higher education for first-generation and minority students who go on to make a difference at their jobs and in their communities. A university proud to call Chicago home.
