We need your help! Northwood University is making changes to improve our alumni participation rate. This simple metric describes the number of alumni donors against the total number of alumni. Right now, our rate is low compared to other schools our size and we need your help to improve it.


For some of our events, you may see a suggested donation amount. For these events, the cost to attend is free! We do this to encourage all alumni to participate.


If you’re able, please consider supporting these Northwood alumni events by donating in the field at the bottom of this page. For events with registration fees, please consider giving $5 extra to support future programs and events. Based on industry standards, registration fees for events do not count towards the alumni participation rate.


Thank you for helping us support The Northwood Idea!
