A Welcome Message from Dr. Tessman

Dear Wildcat Family,

I hope you’ll take a minute to watch this video ( marking my first official day as the 17th President of Northern Michigan University. I couldn’t be more excited!

I’ll spend my first day as president meeting with many folks who make Northern special - students, staff, faculty, community leaders, and partners from our local schools. In the coming weeks, I will look forward to meeting many of you - the alumni, families, friends, industry partners, and statewide leaders who support NMU in so many ways.

Thank you. And…Go Cats!

NMU molded me into the person that I am today. From being a student-athlete to working as an intern on campus to becoming a grad assistant; I was able to experience it all. I can proudly say, no matter what position you’re in or what angle you look at, there’s NO PLACE like Northern.
