For Faculty

1. Community Engagement and Research Cluster Grant Presentation

Please join students from history, sociology, geography and planning, and economics on Friday, January 10, for a poster presentation on their fall semester community-based learning and research centered on housing. Students will share initial data gathered on a 44-block area of southeast Grand Rapids-sometimes called the forgotten neighborhood. Our community partners, the  Fair Housing Center of West Michigan, will be present. Find event details here. This event is generously supported by a CLAS research cluster grant.

 

2. Registration Extended - from Sherril Soman, Registrar

Recent weather events have interrupted the first week of classes. As a result we have modified the calendar for the beginning of the semester to allow students to attend a full week of classes in order to make informed decisions about their schedules and have an opportunity to make revisions as needed.

For registration purposes we will treat Wednesday January 8, 2014 as the first day of classes for the semester. The last day to Add, Register or Pay and 100% Tuition Refund deadline will be Tuesday January 14 at 10 PM. The adjusted calendar can be found at  http://www.gvsu.edu/registrar/important-dates-39.htm

If you have any questions please contact the registrar's office by phone at (616) 331-3327 or by email at regdept@gvsu.edu. You may also stop in at one of the student assistance centers for help.
