Being different is nothing new to Northland College. Founded in 1892, Northland has distanced itself from the traditional collegiate academic routine since 1971, when it took the visionary step of blending an environmental focus with a liberal arts mission. More than 35 years later, others are only now playing catch-up. Long before “green” and “global climate change” became part of our national conversation, Northland was building its national reputation as a leader in environmental and sustainability issues. Passionate teaching is at the heart of a Northland education. Northland students and faculty have been addressing the science and politics of the human-nature relationship in practical and imaginative ways long before most others thought it important or relevant.
