The College of Graduate Education and Research at NMU, located in Marquette, MI, on the ancestral homelands of the Anishinaabe nation, promotes student and faculty discovery through research and creative endeavors. We facilitate and advocate for ethical and responsible scholarship; through teaching and practice, we encourage students to be responsible and active participants. We work to connect students and faculty members to outside entities in the community and through external funding, creating opportunities for collaboration, dissolving boundaries between discipline, college, community, ideology and geography. We seek to advance the success of all faculty and students, including those affected by racial, social, and economic inequities.
