Michigan Tech Finalizes Nursing Program and Plans New Dorm Building

The Michigan Technological Board of Trustees officially approved a Bachelor of Science in Nursing program in response to the closing of Finlandia.

6 faculty members and 1 staff member from Finlandia will lead the program. The program will be housed in the Biological Sciences Department.

During the same meeting of the Board of Trustees, there was also an announcement of a plan to build a new residence hall for undergraduate students.

The dorm will house around 500 second year and upper division students, tentatively beginning in Fall 2025. It will be located just east of the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts, and aims to offer suits with both single- and double- occupancy bedrooms and semiprivate baths.

The planning activities will begin this summer, and construction will aim to start later this year.

The last two incoming classes were the largest since 1984, and domestic applications for Fall 2023 are up 33%, which is a new record.

Michigan tech’s Vice President for University Relations and Enrollment, John Lehman, said that students are enrolling more in STEM related fields, and he expects this year’s incoming class to be comparably strong in both number and academic credentials.
