The GV NextEd Co-Lab furthers GVSU's commitment to creating new paths to and through the University for all learners in all communities. The Co-Lab is an incubator founded on the principles of liberatory co-design. We work with traditional and non–traditional partners inside and outside GVSU, and harness universities’ powerful credentialing fulcrum to improve outcomes, not just in higher education but in the K12 and workforce sectors as well.

As an incubator, the Co-Lab values growth and impact equally. Programs that demonstrate product-market fit, measurable achievement of their social–impact KPIs, and a path to sustainability are spun off to existing units within the university or spun out as freestanding entities.

We welcome ideas and new partners and are especially interested in facilitating innovative research and practice ideas from GVSU faculty and students. If you’d like to chat, please reach out to [email protected]

“GV NextEd Co-Lab is designed so innovative ideas that push public education forward can be implemented. It aligns with our deep commitment to inclusion, our communities and social justice. We will be able to test ideas and rapidly expand those that work, so we can have a profound impact on access and learning outcomes. This concentrated effort will advance the public good in Michigan and around the country.”

President Philomena V. Mantella
