What is "I am Grand Valley"?
"I am Grand Valley" is a leadership recognition program for GVSU students. The program recognizes student leaders who are the essential elements of the University community, including student employees, leaders in student organizations, resident assistants, students that excel in the classroom, and so on. Every year, students, faculty and staff are asked to nominate students who they feel display and utilize strong leadership skills that contribute to the campus and beyond.


What else does the campaign entail?
The first Wednesday of every month is "I am Grand Valley" day, on which students are encouraged to wear their shirts, stickers and buttons. In January, there will be an "I am Grand Valley" calendar of leadership related events open to all students called Campus Leadership Week. If you have an event that you would like included in during Campus Leadership Week campaign, please e-mail iamgv@gvsu.edu.

How are nominated students recognized?
Nominated students are recognized throughout the semester on "I am Grand Valley" days, and will be recognized with an "I am Grand Valley" shirt and certificate in January at the I am Grand Valley Leadership Reception.

What if my nominee does not attend classes or reside near the Allendale campus?
Students who attend class at any of the GVSU campuses are eligible to receive recognition through I am Grand Valley, however only one reception is held on the Allendale campus.  Students who are unable to attend the reception in Allendale should respond to the invitation (which they will receive automatically after their nominator submits their nomination).  Students can contact the I am Grand Valley Student Assistant to make arrangements to pick
up their certificate and t-shirt at the GVSU campus that they attend.

What if I missed the deadline to pick up my "I am Grand Valley" materials? 
If you RSVP'd, your materials are available for pick up in the Office of Student Life, until the end of January.  Arrangements to pick them up can be made with iamgv@gvsu.edu. However after January 31st t-shirts and certificates will no longer be avalible as the office cannot store them for an externed period of time.
