Click on each theme heading to hear from students, faculty and donors on how private funding and scholarships impact their lives.


ACCESS AND AFFORDABILITY


At NMU, we believe that higher education should be exceptional, affordable and available. Financial barriers should not stand in the way of acquiring an NMU education that supplies the skills, experience and values that lead to success.


THE BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST



Having the resources to attract outstanding faculty and high-achieving students is critical. They energize the campus community, drive the university to higher and higher levels of excellence and increase the value of a Northern education for all graduates.


RESEARCH AND CAREER-BUILDING

Academic programming at NMU is built on a unique blend of scholarship, discovery and application. Students work side-by-side with faculty and participate in hands-on experiences, research and career-building that would be unheard of in much larger institutions. These opportunities give our graduates a competitive edge in the job marketplace and a head start in in their chosen professions.


INNOVATIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS



Enhanced learning and study environments provide access to the technologies, methods and experiences that will ensure the competitiveness of our graduates in the academic arena and the global marketplace for years to come.
