Offices Relocate

Some campus offices relocated for the start of the semester. Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreational Sports, which had been in the PEIF, is in the U.S. Olympic Education Center’s Superior Dome location with remaining USOEC staff.  A previous reorganization integrated the USOEC into Athletics and Recreational Sports. Some of the vacated offices in the PEIF are being used by the Health, Physical Education and Recreation department.

A merger of Continuing Education and Workforce Development was approved by the NMU Board of Trustees in July and the offices moved into renovated room 204 in the Jacobetti Center in early August (pictured). Continuing Education relocated from Cohodas Hall. Workforce Development previously occupied a different office in Jacobetti.


Robert Eslinger (Continuing Education and Workforce Development), said the merger has gone well and makes sense because the office connects the university to the community and U.P. companies.

“It’s a good combination from the lifelong learning perspective,” he said. “We offer skill upgrades and testing for the workforce and U.P. companies such as Cliffs Natural Resources. The training takes place both on campus and on site. We also offer continuing education in the form of professional development on campus and across the state for real estate appraisers, school bus drivers, social workers and others.

"When you look at the various pieces including the Northern Center for Lifelong Learning, which we support, it’s a good fit and you can see that we can provide non-credit personal and professional development opportunities for area residents and businesses across a pretty good spectrum. We are also looking at ways to grow.”
