A Renewed You. A Renewed Commitment.

As seen in last week’s Spring System Update, there are many exciting developments at Northwood University. We are in several stages of consideration for new degree and certificate programs; we have promising  increases in fall applications and commitments; we have experienced an even higher level of media exposure; and our Capital Campaign is over 70% complete.

But we also have much more to accomplish, so this is a perfect time to renew our commitments—to ourselves and to our work. Doing so is good for all of us as it benefits our work and those we serve in and out of our University. And it’s good for us individually as it facilitates the growth and creativity essential to who we are and what we do.

So as we enter more fully into the season of spring, let’s renew our commitments to ourselves to work and focus on what matters most. There may be bumps along the way but as Nelson Mandela reminds us, "The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”

Enjoy this extended weekend with those you love.
