President's Report 2011–12

From the President

When college admissions materials say that an institution is “academically excellent” does a reader dismiss it as hype? What does the term truly signify? What evidence supports the assertion?

At Northwestern, we ask ourselves these questions often and each time the answers lead to confidence in this: We say we are academically excellent because it is true.

Faculty scholarship and research are reaching new heights. Exemplifying this is Dr. Ed Glenny (Biblical & Theological Studies), who has published and presented numerous articles and papers during the college’s first endowed J. Edwin Hartill Professorship.

Last spring, Dr. Jonathan Den Hartog (History) was selected as a Visiting Fellow at Princeton University (New Jersey) with the James Madison Program for American Ideals and Institutions.

Student success and opportunities

Academic quality is evident in our students. Charissa Doebler ’12 is Northwestern’s ninth Fulbright Scholar in the past nine years. The Fulbright program only selects America’s brightest and best.

New programs—such as the five-year Bachelor of Arts/Master of Divinity degree, the proposed accelerated nursing degree, and “Degree in Three”—reflect excellence in a proactive approach to help students and families with the rising costs of college.

Faculty and students are collaborating on research projects, publishing articles, and presenting papers. You will see several examples of this in the annual report.

Part of our DNA

“Academically excellent” is simply part of our DNA and we see excellence emerging in new graduate and online learning programs, all while maintaining our mission as a Christ-centered institution of higher education. Above all, we seek to give God our highest and best.

At the threshold of our move to university status in the coming year, I could not be more confident and enthusiastic about Northwestern’s academic excellence and its future.

King Brothers Clothiers partner with Don Shelby for new 'Shelby Knot' tie collection

Alumni Kenny '10 and Danny King '10, in Pioneer Press and Haven Magazine

Kenny told us why he's personally invested in this business:

"Style is something we’ve been passionate about for a very long time. As many men our age have done, we grew up looking at photos of our grandpas and wanted to look just like them. It’s funny how things tend to skip a generation.

We’re twins, and as such, there was often a desire for us to be our own person. It was always so easy for people to group us together: 'Let’s invite Kenny and Danny,' or  'I’m going over to Kenny and Danny’s house.'

What we wore helped us to establish ourselves as separate units. We didn’t share clothes growing up because even at a very young age, we learned one’s clothing was a key component to establishing an image. People always associated us with what we were wearing: 'Kenny is in the red today, and Danny is in the blue.'

Today, our passion continues. We have different jobs (Kenny is morning anchor for ABC 6 News, Rochester, and Danny is  the Youth Pastor at Roseville Covenant Church) and different lives these days, but our love for style has continued to be a part of who we are – it’s what’s been driving King Brothers Clothiers, the ShelbyKnot Collection, and has served as a way for us to remain close as brothers, friends, and now business partners."
