The Northern Michigan University Board of Trustees will host a public open house to recognize outgoing President David Haynes for his leadership and service to NMU over the past two years. The free event will be held from 4-6 p.m. Friday, June 13, at the Wahtera Pavilion on the north side of Cohodas Hall. The rain location will be in the University Center’s Peter White Lounge.
Haynes assumed the presidency in May 2012. Highlights of his tenure include securing funds for the new Jamrich Hall and overseeing construction of the new facility set to open this fall; successful ratification of three employee union contracts; developing a new enrollment management and student services division to better address enrollment and retention; and improving NMU's support of past, present and future military service personnel.
The NMU Board of Trustees will honor Haynes and NMU First Lady Martha Haynes for their work on behalf of the university. No RSVP is required to attend the open house.
