The Hult Prize at GV

The Hult Prize is a start-up accelerator for social entrepreneurship which brings together the brightest college and university students from around the globe to solve the world’s most pressing issues. The annual initiative is the world’s largest crowdsourcing platform for social good and one of the planet’s leading forces for good.

The purpose of the competition is to form sustainable companies around base of the pyramid issues (hunger, early childhood education, etc).  The teams are designed to be multidisciplinary in nature.

GVSU's CEI program will be holding a qualifier competition in December 2015 and the winner of that will go on to a guaranteed spot in one of the world regional finals.

Contact CEI if you are interested in getting involved.


Grad Hub

GradHub is a time to head out on the town and enjoy some time with your fellow graduate students. We meet at various locations around downtown GR. See our Weekly Events for dates and times.



PACES Workshops and events support you in pursuing your graduate degree and prepares you for real-world professional situations and environments - whether already working in your career or planning to soon. PACES professional development is a voluntary, co-curricular program designed to help graduate students gain non-disciplinary skills for success through, and beyond, their education. Past topics include critical conversations, cultural sensitivity, debt management/financial planning and optimizing your resume.



Legislative Actions Days in DC are a chance for graduate students to discuss higher education funding, student visas, and student debt with congress. LAD is held in both Fall and Spring.



The mission of the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students (NAGPS) is to:

  • empower our members to successfully serve their constituents, and
  • amplify students’ voices to campus, local, state, and federal policymakers.
