"At Grand Valley I built a solid foundation for pursuing a job in industries such as the one I work in now, where we do work with communities, we do education on diversity, and we address cultural differences." - Alfredo Hernandez '09, Diversity Education Associate, Lakeshore Ethnic Diversity Alliance

About Us

Through an ever-changing, ever-evolving array of programs, we help the University expand beyond the classroom to build communities of lifelong learners that are more informed, better prepared, and uniquely engaged in their work, leisure and the world in which they live.

We provide opportunities for lifelong learning through:

  • Degree Completion at Regional Centers
