Grief Counseling

Toward wellness and goodness

Grief can arise from many causes: death, divorce, employment loss, health issues, drug or alcohol abuse, COVID related and more. How one deals with that grief can take many forms, or worse, none at all.

NMU Continuing Education is offering an 8-week online program for those coping with grief, to assist with their personal or professional growth.

Presidential Search Update

In an effort to ensure active engagement among all constituency groups, the Presidential Search Advisory Committee (PSAC) at NMU has revised its timeline. Campus interviews with finalists will take place in September, with NMU’s next president ideally selected by the end of that month, shortly after Homecoming.

“Selecting Northern’s next president is incredibly important. We want to ensure full and active representation throughout the process, so we adapted the schedule to allow for that,”
                                  – Chris Greer, dean of students and PSAC chair

If you know someone who you think would be a great candidate for the next NMU president, learn more and access the nomination form at nmu.edu/boardoftrustees/presidential-search. In the meantime, NMU Board Chair Steve Young announced that Interim President Kerri Schuiling ‘73 BSN has been named president until a successor is hired.

A new 2022 NMU Strategic Plan is now in place to help guide the university and the future president’s transition.
