Jason Rhode takes the helm as the university’s chief online learning officer

When it comes to leadership and strategy for NIU’s online and off-campus program development, Jason Rhode is on a mission.

As the newly appointed executive director of extended learning, Rhode will serve as NIU’s chief online learning officer and continue to build upon the university’s efforts to serve non-traditional learners.

“I am excited to work with our faculty, staff and administration in new ways to bring new programs to the market that will meet the needs of working adults in the northern Illinois region and beyond,” Rhode said.

New online and off-campus programs are in development along with enhancements to current programs.

“We are seeing an increasing number of students choosing to take online courses,” Rhode said. “Working adults who can’t come to campus to finish their degree or who choose a new career path want to take advantage of online offerings.”
