National Louis University is one of the oldest and most progressive universities in Chicago. We offer more than 60 undergraduate and graduate degree programs through three colleges: the National College of Education, the College of Management and Business and the College of Arts and Sciences. We are best known as a “teacher of teachers,” conferring more graduate education degrees than any other university in Illinois. We are also one of the most diverse universities in the Midwest, helping students of all ages and backgrounds achieve their personal and professional goals. National Louis University was founded on the principle that a quality education can transform lives, careers and communities. More than 125 years ago, education pioneer and social reformer Elizabeth Harrison opened a kindergarten training school to promote early childhood education, then considered a radical idea.
