Gaylen & Joanne Larson

Gaylen and Joanne Larson


Gaylen and Joanne's giving to NIU is truly unique in that it has impacted all three major strategic priorities of the university: scholarships, faculty support, and programs. They have not only touched every area of NIU, they have done so with significant, major gifts. Their impact at NIU is historic.
