Northern Michigan University President Fritz Erickson is seeking campus-wide input for the “post-pandemic phase.” This revised “Investing in Innovation” plan will reflect NMU’s focus on the processes for efficient equity and the importance of mind/body wellness. It also includes two new strategic outcomes: advancing the rural agenda and moving NMU toward carbon neutrality.

The updated “Investing in Innovation” states that moving forward with these select strategic initiatives creates a bold plan for Northern to simultaneously and strategically consider new programs; recruit top-caliber students, faculty and staff; and develop innovative responses to local, regional and state issues and needs.

Feedback will be accepted through Monday, April 19, at Those who email are asked to type “Strategic Plan” in the subject line.
