The Center for Scholarly and Creative Excellence (CSCE) promotes a culture of active, engaged and ethical scholarship through supporting innovative faculty and student research and collaborative partnerships in the broader community.

At Grand Valley State University, research, scholarship, and creative activity are essential components of the university’s mission as an institution of higher learning. Excellence in teaching at the university level depends upon active scholarship by faculty members. Through basic and applied research, artistic expression and performance, and other forms of scholarship, GVSU faculty members and students contribute to the development and application of knowledge, create a dynamic environment for learning, and contribute to the economic progress of the region that it serves.
