Economic Engine

The communities that host our campuses are among the state's most vibrant - each enjoys greater economic health because of Grand Valley's presence. Grand Valley creates more than $780 million in economic activity in West Michigan.

Our 102,000 alumni are the bedrock of the communities in which they live and work. Our business development centers work every day to help entrepreneurs and small business owners succeed and prosper. Our research centers in water resources and alternative energy preserve and protect our environment.

The philanthropic community has helped Grand Valley to construct new facilities, easing the burden on taxpayers while creating thousands of construction jobs. For more details, refer to Grand Valley's Economic Impact site.
