Academic and Teaching Business Innovation Center
The new Academic Teaching and Business Innovation Center project, through a partial renovation coupled with a new addition, will breathe new life into an old academic building (McClintock) and create an economic development center that can create products, jobs, businesses and, perhaps, even industries for the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The Center will not only provide a state-of-the-art home for the Northern Michigan University College of Business, but would also provide space to enable us to better coordinate activities with Invent@NMU, Northern Initiatives, the Innovate Marquette Smartzone, and the Center for Rural Community and Economic Development. The Academic Teaching and Business Innovation Center will be a one stop location for entrepreneurs, investors, inventors, students and faculty. This center will provide economic opportunities for the Upper Peninsula and beyond and an educational experience for students unlike any other university.
