Superior Edge

Northern Michigan University's Superior Edge is a student development program encompassing a wide range of experiential activities complementing classroom instruction to provide students with a distinct advantage by preparing them for lifelong learning, graduate school, careers and life as engaged citizens.

  • Citizenship – Become an engaged, involved citizen
  • Diversity – Develop sensitivity and awareness of global and domestic diversity issues
  • Leadership – Become a competent, ethical and effective leader
  • Real World – Relate classroom theory to workplace practice in real-world settings
