The new President of Northern Michigan University spoke to NMU staff about the upcoming school year on Wednesday. Dr. Fritz Erickson and others spoke about what they are hoping to get out of the 2014-2015 school year at NMU. Major points of Dr. Erickson's speech were about celebrating the excellence of the university and coming up with a collective strategic plan for the future.
"My hope is to set the tone that now is time for bold actions, for investments, for us to be entrepreneurial and for us to really celebrate who we are," NMU President Dr. Fritz Erickson said. "There are so many great things that are going on on campus, we need to share all that we are with our broader communities."
