President's Messages

This past weekend we celebrated with six women and men their induction into a group of more than 300 Northwood University Outstanding Business Leaders (OBL).

It’s been said that experience is the best teacher. We take those words to heart at Northwood University, where we weave experiential learning opportunities into every major and program of study.

There’s something about automobiles that gets us excited here at Northwood University. So excited, in fact, that we can feel the energy of Detroit’s North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) all the way to Midland, 128 miles north of Cobo Hall, site of the NAIAS. Could it be the sleek new cars, the stunning luxury […]

We recently celebrated with Interim President of the Michigan Campus and Dean of Students, Dr. Larry Lindsey, a career at Northwood University that spanned 43 years.

…And they have a lot to say on and off the field of play. The Northwood sports teams on our Florida and Midland campuses posted an impressive record of successes during the fall season. The Women’s Golf team in Florida is ranked #1 in the 2014-2015 NAIA Women’s Golf Coaches’ Preseason Top 25 poll and […]

The pilgrims who journeyed to the new world had great cause for joy when they landed at Plymouth Rock. They celebrated the first thanksgiving in 1621 with hearts full of gratitude. Could they have imagined their decision to leave their homeland would be the beginnings of the greatest democracy on earth? Northwood University was established […]
