Marquette, I. (AFP) The president of Northern Michigan University was fired Friday.
The NMU Board of Directors voted 8-0 to dismiss Fritz Ericsson, who has led the Upper Peninsula School since July 2014.
“Good things have happened, but we can and must do more,” said Guardian Steve Young.
Ericsson’s contract was supposed to expire in 2023.
Erickson was Vice President of Ferris State University before moving to NMU. He has also worked at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay, Eastern Washington University, and Michigan Tech University.
NMU has approximately 7,600 students in Marquette, 165 miles northwest of the Mackinac Bridge.
