COMPASS Program's Purpose

The purpose of the Grand Valley State University College of Education (COE) COMPASS Program is to increase the number of underrepresented students in the education profession. The College of Education seeks to identify and recruit future educators to become admitted to and graduate from its teacher certification programs. This will be accomplished by creating a learning community that will include:

  1. Service learning and reflection
  2. Assistance with test preparation, public speaking skills and writing skills
  3. A mentoring component that will pair students with COE personnel to provide exposure to the teaching profession
