The Kirkhof College of Nursing took part in the Michigan Women’s Foundation University of Life program held at Grand Valley State University in late July.  The residential on-campus adventure for 6th to 9th grade girls offered a focused look at high potential careers, life changing leadership development and college/career exploration. KCON faculty and students shared details about their personal journeys and advice for academic and career success.  GVSU’s Seidman College of Business and the Michigan Women’s Foundation collaborated to bring the program to West Michigan for the first time.
