Brock Tessman to be new NMU president

MARQUETTE — The Northern Michigan University Board of Trustee this morning voted unanimously to name Brock Tessman as the new NMU president.

Tessman is deputy commissioner of higher education with the Montana University System.

He will begin his new position in February, with NMU President Kerri Schuiling, who has been serving as president in an interim role, to continue until that time.

Tessman will succeed Fritz Erickson, who was terminated in September 2021.

More details will be in Friday’s Mining Journal.
