Message from the President

This Annual Report reviews the excellent results achieved by North Central College during fiscal year 2012-2013. In addition to a 42nd consecutive balanced budget, the recruiting of a stellar class of first-year and transfer students and growing numbers of engaged scholars and Presidents Club donors, the year was highlighted by a transition in presidential leadership. During 2012-2013, I was honored to assume the presidency of North Central College from Dr. Harold R. Wilde, who officially retired on December 31, 2012.

Message from the Chairman

As you will see in this redesigned version of North Central College’s Annual Report, we experienced yet another successful year by nearly all measures of success. A balanced budget, healthy enrollment numbers, escalating credit hours in the sciences despite our facilities, national athletic champions and a robust residential campus all reflect an institution poised to continue its success for decades to come.
