For Faculty

  1. Your help needed with some data about our graduates

The university has asked for as many examples as we can provide of the placement of recent graduates.  Each year, CLAS asks students to volunteer this information at graduation time ( http://gvsu.edu/clas/class-of-2013-future-plans-458.htm and http://gvsu.edu/clas/class-of-2012-future-plans-396.htm ), but we suspect you have heard about the graduate school and job plans of many more and have updates on what these graduates were able to tell us just before they graduated.

If you have additions to the 2012- 2013 graduates, could you e-mail clas@gvsu.edu in this format?

First and Last name, major/s, job or graduate program or other plan

For instance, 

  • Amy Yeats, English, Peace Corps
  • Jason Atom, Chemistry and Statistics, U of M graduate program in Chemistry
  • Stacy Bard, Theatre, Assistant Manager of GR Civic Theatre

We appreciate your help in gathering this data for internal use.  It will not be posted on a website or otherwise advertised without the permission of the graduate.  Information received by August 7 will be most useful.  Thank you.
