Northern State University

Northern State University is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the liberal arts and in graduate and professional education. Its distinctiveness in its pursuit of mission derives from its coeducational and residential character, its size and location, and its role as a public, state-sponsored university. NSU's vision is to be a nationally-recognized, student-centered institution, committed to academic and extracurricular excellence, and providing global learning opportunities in a beautiful Midwestern setting. Three values that drive NSU students, faculty, and staff are Connection, Community, and Education. Connection: NSU values relationships by maintaining the highest ethical integrity in all we do, values our community through a commitment to responsible stewardship, and values the future through the development of human, intellectual, cultural, financial, and environmental resources. Community: NSU creates a vibrant community through teamwork, cooperation, and mutual respect in an environment that is diverse in knowledge, culture, and world view. Education: NSU expands research and teaching to issues of importance to our community, state, and region, and assures academic rigor and the highest standards of excellence in all intellectual inquiry. Finally, we believe the following principles will guide us as we work to uphold these values: Maintaining extraordinary standards in academic rigor, intellectual inquiry, and rich life experiences; Fostering engaged learning through evidence-based inquiry, high integrity, global experiences; and Cultivating stewardship through beneficial partnerships, responsibility, and efficiency.
