President's Message

Dear NMU Alumni and Friends,David Haynes

Thank you for your support of Northern Michigan University. Without your help, so many of the things that make the NMU experience a very special one would be missing.

Your continuing gifts and pledges to Northern are an investment in the present and the future. They help NMU create and maintain unique student programming, offer scholarships, and assist the university in having state-of-the-art facilities, learning equipment and technology.

Your support in NMU today may be the motivation (i.e. scholarships), tool (i.e. cutting edge laboratory equipment), or experience (i.e. student travel) that plants a seed full of potential to grow into something phenomenal tomorrow.

At NMU, we challenge one another to think of a Northern Michigan University education in big ways. We want the NMU experience to be a cornerstone for our students to learn the skills they need to make a difference in their lives, their professions and their communities. Your continued support helps us to develop tomorrow’s community and national leaders, artists, entrepreneurs, health care specialists, scientists and teachers.

Northern Michigan University has continued to rise to a new level of excellence. We are extremely proud of our recent accomplishments and excited about our goals to develop even more dynamic learning and discovery opportunities. Thank you for being a part of our success. Thank you for your gifts to Northern. Together we are making great things happen at NMU.
