NIU's Housing Policy, Dorm Evictions, & "Community Notification" Law


Shortly before Thanksgiving, 1996, the Northern Illinois University Administration discovered that, under Illinois' recent Community Notification Law for sex offenders, two students had registered with local police. The University evicted the students the day before Thanksgiving, requiring that they vacate by the following Sunday. The University continues to defend its actions, but controversy remains.
