Northern Illinois University officials are preparing to announce who their next leader will be. Although school representatives are being cryptic about the announcement, it could come as early as this week.
Northern Illinois University President John Peters stayed in his position at the school longer than he had planned so he could reach this day: the fifth anniversary of the shooting in Cole Hall, where five students were killed and 21 others were injured.
Nominations and applications are being accepted for the next president of Northern Illinois University. John Peters will step down at the end of June. Applications for his replacement will be accepted through February 15th.
