Welcome to NMC

NMC President Nick Nissley, Ed.D.

Welcome Hawk Owls! We are excited to have you join our community of learners at Northwestern Michigan College!

At NMC, we are committed to improving the lives of people and strengthening the fabric of our region through the power of education. I feel privileged to be able to serve and be a steward of such an awesome, profound mission.

As a servant leader, my role is primarily to assist in the accomplishments and fulfillment of the hopes and expectations of others, especially you, our students. As a possibilitarian, I am dedicated to helping others to think and act beyond boundaries, and to achieve more than was originally imagined. Student success is our collective charge. Everything we do is designed to help you succeed! Whether you are coming to NMC to get the skills you need to advance your career, transfer to a 4-year college or university, or receive specialized training, our outstanding employees are here to help you achieve your goals.

NMC has many reasons to be proud, including awarding more than $1 million in scholarships each year, ranking #2 in the nation for our support of veterans, being top in the state for short-term study abroad, and offering several nationally recognized specialty programs. But most of all, we are proud of you. I look forward to helping you “Be What’s Possible” during your time at Northwestern Michigan College and beyond.
