It’s always great to hear from our alumni and current students really appreciate learning about the experiences of their predecessors. Whether it’s an idea for improving our programs, a story about your personal challenges and achievements since leaving Northern Michigan University or a job lead for an up-coming grad, we’d love to hear from you. Send us your stories, questions, ideas and photos  to You can keep in touch with your former professors, too; their contact information can be found on the faculty directory page.

As NMU and Social Work Department strive for continuous improvement, we’d be very interested in your recommendations for improving our program for future students. If you’re one of our bachelor of social work graduates, you may have need for continuing education related to social work licensure. Please let us know what topics would be useful to you. Also check out the Continuing Education Office to see what NMU has available by way of social work CEUs.

We strongly encourage you to keep your alumni information up to date so we can let you know about what’s happening at NMU. The alumni Web site has an online update form for your convenience. Chances are, the NMU Foundation has contacted you for contributions in the past, but did you know that you can earmark money specifically to the Social Work Department funds? Alumni like you have helped us to develop state-of-the-art practice skills labs for our BSW program and have enriched the experience of students by defraying their expenses for participation at state and national conferences. These are just a couple of ways that your contributions help keep our programs strong.
