Campus Changes Go More than Skin Deep


campusgrowth_photo1Drive around the Northwood Michigan campus and you can see the progress. Beautiful new buildings. Lush landscaping. Oh, and a little bit of ongoing construction. Yet the changes are more than just skin deep upgrades and technology tweaks. Part of Northwood’s strategic restructuring initiative announced in March of 2015, these changes to the Midland campus promise to enrich the Northwood University experience for today’s students and create a path to a more sustainable future for the university.

Updating physical facilities and infrastructure ensures NU’s ongoing relevance, vitality and individuality in a competitive market and enables Northwood to meet its mission – to continue providing students with a world class business education based on capitalism and free-enterprise.

In the midst of a 30-month campus improvement effort that began with the renovation of Bennett Center and construction of the new Richard DeVos Graduate School of Management building, the physical growth on campus is apparent.

Improved living and learning spaces. Technological advances. Modern fitness facilities. These are the physical changes that enable Northwood to attract high-caliber students and outstanding faculty devoted to offering students unique and professional business perspectives.

The improved spaces strengthen Northwood’s identity through a commitment to community and serve as a framework for long-term development of NU’s programs, paving the way for a new era of learning.

Campus Improvements Light Up Northwood’s Future Recently completed and ongoing improvement projects increase systems reliability, lower maintenance costs, and make Northwood’s campus safer and more comfortable.
