On March 23, , two young men with an idea, a goal, and a pragmatic philosophy to encompass it all, broke away from their careers in a traditional college structure to create a new concept in education. Their visionary idea became a reality when Dr.
Arthur E. Turner and Dr. Gary Stauffer enrolled students at Northwood Institute, using a 19th century mansion in Alma, Michigan, as a school building, a small amount of borrowed money for operating expenses, and a large amount of determination. Northwood was created as the world was changing. The Russians had launched Sputnik and America was soon to follow.
Stauffer and Turner watched the race to space. They envisioned a new type of university-one where management led the way. While the frontiers of space were revealing their mysteries, Stauffer and Turner understood all endeavors — technical, manufacturing, marketing, retail, every type of business — needed state-of-the-art, ethics-driven management.
David E. Fry took the helm in Continuing with the same ideals as Drs. Stauffer and Turner, never wavering from the core values, the University grew and matured. Our founders had a vision and they articulated it well — free-enterprise, global perspective, and ethical behavior. With over 33, graduates who have passed through our halls and a 50th anniversary upon us, we are pleased to report The Northwood Idea is alive and well with a bright future unfolding.
