DeKALB – Northern Illinois University officials issued their own statement Tuesday in response to DeKalb County State's Attorney Clay Campbell, who said his office was "closely monitoring" an investigation into alleged misconduct at Northern Illinois University.
"We welcome the continued involvement of DeKalb County States’ Attorney Clay Campbell in the ongoing investigation of the allegations regarding the existence of an NIU coffee fund account," the university statement said. "... Mr. Campbell’s office has been kept appraised of the investigation by NIU law enforcement, as his (Mr. Campbell’s) cooperation and assistance has been essential to proceed with the investigation.
"After all, the investigation itself was initiated by the university within less than two hours of receiving the allegations."

"For over 110 years, thousands upon thousands of students’ lives have been transformed as a result of the educational opportunities they received at NIU. NIU will not cease investigating this allegation or any further allegations that may arise until a thorough and complete investigation is performed, no matter where it leads."
