Northwood University will announce exciting plans for growth as part of the public phase of its capital campaign on Thursday, December 6th, 2012 beginning at 12:30 PM.

The community is invited to join University President & CEO Dr. Keith Pretty, and Campus President Dr. Tom Duncan, along with university faculty, staff, students, and supporters for the public launch of Northwood's Restoring the American Dream Capital Campaign to be held at its Edwards Bell Tower & Plaza. The Northwood Florida campus is located at 2600 N. Military Trail – one block north of Okeechobee Boulevard in West Palm Beach. Please call 561 478-5539 to RSVP.

The public phase of Northwood's comprehensive capital campaign will continue over the next two years. Funds raised will support campus facilities improvement, new graduate school facilities, ongoing scholarship funding, and endowed academic chairs and professors. "In this era of unfunded projects and rampant deficits, we believe one must have funding in place before moving forward on any major initiative," states Pretty. "We practice what we teach our students - the important combination of fiscal responsibility and entrepreneurship."

The University has reached nearly 65 percent of the system-wide $80 million goal during the campaign's "quiet phase." This phase included outreach to large donors -- which is a testament to the school's recognition and respect in the regions and industries that it serves. Northwood now turns to the greater community to help fund its campaign goals. "We now are moving beyond the traditional network, foundations and private donors to the wider community. The University is now seeking support from alumni businesses, friends of the university and others," continues Pretty. "We are optimistic that our benefactors will step forward to help us in our continuing mission to make Northwood University a truly unique place for students to live and learn."

A private, not-for-profit university, Northwood University follows its guiding principle of fiscal responsibility when it comes to implementing a comprehensive capital campaign and achieving financial sustainability across its three campuses in Midland, Michigan, West Palm Beach, Florida, and Cedar Hill, Texas.
