Director of educational technology for NMC, Terri Gustafson says this activity helps student develop leadership and communication skills.

Gustafson says, “We did a little research and then we talked to some community members and found out that there was a big interest in the area. Actually, there aren’t any other programs in Northern Michigan as of yet at the college level, other than Ferris State.”

NMC says this program won’t be launching until the Fall of 2021.
