Graduating Future Leaders

Northwood University’s spring commencement ceremonies last month celebrated the accomplishments of our 2017 graduates and future leaders of a global, free enterprise society. Watch this video for a glimpse at the celebration. [embed][/embed]


From our programs in Texas, Michigan and beyond we honored 892 students; 340 traditional undergraduates, 178 from the DeVos Graduate School of Management, and 374 from our Adult Degree Program. This latest class will now embark on the next chapter of their lives, and continue to build upon the foundation of knowledge they received here at Northwood.

This time of year is bittersweet as we see our long-time students packing up and preparing to leave. However, I am hopeful for our new graduates and know they have been part of an educational process here at Northwood that is so much more than the classes we offer. I am hopeful for their employers because I know they are hiring ethical, responsible and capable businessmen and women. I am hopeful for their future communities because I know they will be active contributors and change agents. I am proud of all they accomplished here, and am hopeful for their future accomplishments.

Congratulations to the Northwood University Class of 2017!

Have a great weekend,


Keith A. Pretty, J.D. President and CEO Northwood University 4000 Whiting Drive Midland, MI 48640 989.837.4203
