Grand Valley State University Women's Center
Engaging with our Community
We recognize the importance of engaging with K-12 students in our community in order to increase access to higher education. We work with our community partners to host Celebrating Girls in Sports, Girl Scouts STEM College Readiness, and Girls on the Run each year.
Hosted each October, this day-long event provides the opportunity for middle school girls to work with women athletes on campus as we celebrate National Girls and Women in Sports Day.
Girl Scouts STEM College Readiness Experience Day
In partnership with Girl Scouts of Michigan Shore to Shore, the Women's Center collaborates with science faculty to host middle and high school girls on campus for a day of science exploration.
Held annually in May, the Women's Center partners with the Center for Women in Transition and other campus partners to host thousands of young girls and their parents for a 5k Run!
