Dress Code

Date: March, 2017


NIU has no university-wide dress code. Employees are nevertheless expected to dress in good taste and to portray a professional image for the university. Standards of dress in the academic community should parallel those in the outside employment setting. It is anticipated that common sense, respect for others and their property, and good taste will prevail to avoid adverse public opinion. Departments are given the freedom to establish appropriate standards of dress as required.  Questions regarding uniforms or appropriate dress for a particular area should be directed to the supervisor.
