Community Reception for New NMU President Tuesday

Brock Tessman

A community and campus reception for recently appointed Northern Michigan University President Brock Tessman and his family will be held from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, in Ballrooms III and IV of the Northern Center. The event features special appearances by the NMU Marching Band and the NMU Jazz Combo. 

Tessman, who grew up in Plymouth, Mich., will become the 17th president of NMU, effective Feb. 1. He has served as deputy commissioner of higher education for the Montana University System since 2018, and has previous experience as a faculty member and campus leader. The NMU Board of Trustees unanimously approved his selection at a special meeting in late September.

He will be in Marquette Oct. 17-22, meeting with campus groups and Marquette city and school officials, and touring NMU facilities. Tessman's wife, Kristin, and daughters Frances and Leona will accompany him on the trip.
