Fall 2021 - Welcome to The Pursuit, the newsletter for alumni of Northeast College. Each trimester, The Pursuit will share the latest Northeast news and initiatives, highlight great events, and tell the stories of outstanding Northeast students, faculty, staff, and alumni as they pursue academic excellence, leadership, and professional best practices.
This has been a truly extraordinary year for our College. We have remained proudly committed to the education of the world’s premiere healthcare leaders, even as we continued to manage the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have found innovative new solutions, charted a strong path forward and shared a vision for ongoing excellence. Now, and as we have done over the past 102+ years, our College continues to embrace change and look eagerly toward our future as a distinguished college of health sciences with a renowned chiropractic program always at its core. I'm grateful to have you, our alumni community, with us at this exciting time of growth, and wish you great health and prosperity in the coming year.
