A. GENERAL INFORMATION

A0. Institutional Points of Distinction

Leadership

NMU is home to two nationally recognized leadership programs. The Student Leader Fellowship Program includes a mentorship and community service internship. The one-of-a-kind Superior Edge program, in which nearly one-third of NMU students participate, immerses students in citizenship, diversity awareness, real-world application of classroom theory and leadership.

Sustainability

Four NMU residence halls are now certified by The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. Meyland Hall, which was certified in 2007, was the first residence hall in the Midwest to earn the designation.

Technology

NMU was the first university in the U.S. to build and solely operate its own WiMAX (4G) network, and was selected in 2010 by President Barack Obama as a role model program for expanding broadband capabilities in rural America. Northern also has one of the largest mobile device provider programs in the nation, and has been cited as among the most densely wired and wireless campuses in the United States.

International

Students have a wide variety of options when it comes to international study opportunities. NMU is one of only 16 U.S. institutions granted authorization for study abroad programs in Cuba and is the first to work with Cuban universities outside of Havana. NMU art and design students have had the experience to exhibit at the prestigious Salone Satellite furniture show in Milan, Italy. Northern’s criminal justice program has several cooperative learning and research projects with South African universities and the NMU nursing and health, physical education and recreation departments have longstanding service learning courses providing health care instruction in schools and clinics in Honduras.

Service

NMU is one of about 300 higher education institutions in the nation to earn the Community Engagement classification from the Carnegie Foundation for Advancement of Teaching. Students and staff volunteer more than 100,000 hours in the community each year.
