Planning a Visit?

Please contact us as soon as you are considering a D.C. visit (preferably a month or more in advance) and let us know of your objectives and priorities so that we can provide you with strategic and timely support.

If you are planning a visit to D.C. and do not think you will have time for additional federal engagement facilitated by our office, please contact us regardless. It is always helpful for our office to be aware of NIU visitors to D.C. 

How We Can Help You

Whether you are seeking federal engagement during a visit to D.C. or from campus, we can help you make the most of your time. Some of the ways we can assist include:

  • facilitating meetings with congressional or federal agency offices or officials
  • providing an overview of federal activity in your area of interest
  • seeking federal-level engagement opportunities for you and your priorities
  • give a talk in your department regarding federal issues of interest to you and your colleagues
