|On March 23, 1959, 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. R. Gary Stauffer enrolled 100 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.
Time has validated the success of what these two young educators called "The Northwood Idea" - incorporating the lessons of the American free-enterprise society into the college classroom.
