The Liberal Education Advantage

The Grand Valley educated person can

  • listen, read, talk, write, solve dilemmas;
  • seek truth and wisdom, lead, connect, and work in a community;
  • pay attention to others and the world around them; and
  • pair their critical thinking skills and self-knowledge to connect their formal training, their emotions, past experiences, values, and traditions with those of others.

When you can put that on your resume, you can be sure you're ahead of non-Grand Valley educated candidates from the start!
