NMU Diversity Statement
Northern Michigan University strives to be an inclusive community where differences are recognized as assets of the institution, respected attributes of the person and a valuable part of the university experience.
Aim North Program
Graduating high school seniors in Detroit were able to get a head start on college before leaving their hometown through Aim North, a pilot program offered through Northern Michigan University’s Diversity and Inclusion Office. Students could take two summer courses, earning up to eight credits toward the liberal studies requirements for a degree prior to enrolling at NMU or another institution this fall.
Classes are taught by NMU faculty or qualified Detroit-area instructors. This past summer’s courses included college composition and Anishinaabe language, culture and community. They were held at Cesar Chavez Academy in Southwest Detroit.

Northern is a safe and welcoming place. We aspire to learn from and encourage each other as global citizens, neighbors, colleagues, and family. We desire to be a role model in embracing all types of diversity and diverse points of view, engaging in civil society and governance, protecting human rights and promoting social justice.
Inclusion is one of the seven NMU Core Values.
