Leadership doesn’t come from being like everyone else.

A unique commitment. The natural resources that surround Northland College, like the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest and Lake Superior, have been integrated into our classrooms since our 1892 founding. In 1971, Northland made a bold decision to be a different kind of college by focusing our mission and liberal arts and sciences curriculum around issues of the environment and sustainability. We believe that the environment and sustainability are the most important issues of our time. If they are not addressed successfully, few other global and societal problems will matter. This unique focus provides our faculty and students a common perspective through which to explore together the many academic disciplines that are a part of a sound, high-quality liberal arts and sciences curriculum. These disciplines include the usual areas of study, spanning from business to art, from chemistry to sociology, from teaching to biology, and from English to engineering. Today, Northland College remains a national leader in delivering the most innovative, holistic, and well-established liberal arts and sciences curriculum focused on the environment and sustainability. If you’re someone who won’t settle for anything less than a college degree that reflects true preparation for the future and not just wisdom from the past, you’ll graduate from Northland with something extra: “green” skills that will mark you as a problem-solving leader uniquely prepared for today and the future.

Biology

The Biology major offers an exciting blend of traditional biological study with an added emphasis on ecology and environmental studies. Our Biology program allows you to study in the field and in the lab. You can take advantage of unique northern lakes and woods biomes in more than a million acres of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest and the Lake Superior watershed. You will be prepared for employment in bio-research, natural resources, and environmental consulting.

Meteorology C

Lake Superior significantly affects the Ashland area weather. This “lake effect” can, for example, cause snow to fall on you while just a few miles away it is sunny and 15 degrees warmer. The impact of Lake Superior adds a fascinating aspect to predicting the weather, understanding global climate, and conducting in-depth research on climate change. Northland College is one of the few small private colleges to offer this major. Learn more at northland.edu/meteorology

Do you have a commitment to sustainable living? Let’s face it, no place is perfect. But, the people Northland College strive to be the best in the nation at keeping our campus as sustainable as possible. Why wouldn’t we? At Northland, we cherish the environment around us like the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, Lake Superior, and the Apostle Islands. The college is also a leading member of the Chequamegon Bay Ecomunicipality movement, working with area businesses and agencies to support a thriving rural community. We play our part in ensuring these resources will be available and vital for lifetimes to come. Because 80% of most institutions’ carbon footprint come from buildings, we have made it a priority to make our buildings as low impact as possible. Geothermal heating and cooling, two wind turbines, solar hot water systems, and several photovoltaic arrays make Northland’s campus a national leader in environmental design. The recently-renovated Dexter Library was just the fourth commercial building in Wisconsin to receive LEED Gold certification.
