If you are interested in body donation, please visit the Body Donation Program tab.


Forever Wildcats

Several of our donors have expressed interest in donating their bodies after death to the FROST/FARL program because of their strong connection to the University. Because of the permanent nature of our body donation program, anyone with NMU affiliation who wishes to be recognized as a “Forever Wildcat” may choose to be recognized as such.

We plan to start a “Forever Wildcats” memorial in the laboratory facility to commemorate our donors who wish to express their forever connection to NMU. While donation of one’s body to our program does not involve any fees to the donors or their families, we ask for a $20.00 donation for each “Forever Wildcat” commemorative plaque. Labels on the boxes storing the remains of the “Forever Wildcats” in our permanent collection will also be marked with the image of the NMU Wildcat logo.

To inquire further about becoming a "Forever Wildcat," please contact Director Dr. Jane (Wankmiller) Harris at
