Alumni Professional Development
As a Laker for a Lifetime, GVSU is here to support you as you launch, advance, or pivot your career.
Join the conversation! GVSU faculty, staff and alumni will lead informal discussions on a variety of topics. These events will begin with a brief presentation followed by group dialogue.
Keep learning with a range of topics for your professional and personal life.
Read with Lakers
Read with Lakers is a virtual opportunity for alumni to connect through books. Reading promotes lifelong learning by opening our minds to new ideas and perspectives. Through programming related to the book, we can share our thoughts, learn from one another, and have fun.
Bright Ideas Breakfast
These events feature rotating topics that are applicable across industries facilitated by Grand Valley thought leaders along with breakfast and networking with fellow alumni.
*This series is currently on hold due to COVID-19.
Connect with one of our regional or affinity networks for opportunities to unite with fellow Lakers through socializing, networking, learning, and community service.
View fellow GVSU alumni on LinkedIn. With options to search by location, industry, and more it's easy to make a connection.

You know as well as anyone that GVSU students and alumni are talented and well prepared. The GVSU Career Center can assist you in hiring a fellow Laker, whether for student internships and co-ops or full time positions.
