About Carl Holm

Carl Holm spent 42 years working in Housing & Residence Life at Northern Michigan University, first as a Hall Director, then as an Assistant Dean for Quad I (Payne, Halverson, Gant and Spalding Halls), followed by 27 years as the Director of Housing & Residence Life. For Carl, it was a labor of love. Carl passed away on February 23, 2019.

Student development was at the core of Carl’s tenure in Housing & Residence Life. His “Live, Learn, Lead” initiative survives as a means for developing student leaders who positively impact the campus today and will be positive forces in their future communities following graduation. Community development was a passion for Carl and the positive communities that flourished at the “house” level under his direction and support continue to exist today.

Carl had time for everyone and had a sincere interest in their experiences, stories, and lives. It is not a stretch to say that Carl had a positive impact on thousands of students during his time at Northern Michigan University.
