University Communications

Who we are:

University Communications is a unit of the University Relations Division. We provide a variety of services and products to tell the Grand Valley story to audiences within the university and those reached through the mass media. Our services include:

Approval from an executive officer is required for live webcasting and video services. When a request is submitted, UComm will review the video project and contact the requester for more information.

  • GVNow: Video features like "Around Grand Valley" and daily campus news reports are a part of this online publication.
  • Grand Valley Magazine: Quarterly magazine for the Grand Valley community that includes profiles, features, research news and news about alumni and campus events.
  • Videos: UComm produces convocation and commencement videos, along with special projects, as approved by an executive officer.
  • Success Stories: These items, located on the Grand Valley homepage, tell the unique accomplishments of students, faculty and staff members, and alumni.
