Global Picnic

The Global Opportunities Fund — bringing new experiences to NMC!

Thank you for your interest in the Global Opportunities Fund, created by former NMC President Tim Nelson and his wife, Nancy Johnson. On September 4, 2012, we celebrated with a picnic in the beautiful courtyard at the Hagerty Center on NMC's Great Lakes Campus. The event was hosted by the NMC Foundation.

The picnic brought Global Opportunities Fund donors and recipients together to enjoy dinner while exchanging experiences of international study and travel. Several recipients spoke about their trips to the United Kingdom, Costa Rica, and Russia, all made possible by the Global Opportunities Fund. If you were not able to attend, you can view the videos here to experience three of the presentations that were delivered at the event.

Thanks to the generosity of donors, the Global Opportunities Fund is able to provide funding for study abroad programs, visiting professorships, international exchange programs and cultural events for many to experience. To learn more about Global events or how you can get involved, please visit us at or contact the NMC Foundation at (231) 995-1021.
