Grand Valley State University recognizes that our region, state, and nation become even stronger when the community and the University work together to build strategic and mutually beneficial collaborations. Through these efforts, the community benefits from access to faculty expertise, consultation and research. The University benefits from the increased awareness and program promotion it receives from our community partners, as well as from the hands-on expertise and advice provided by local business. If you are interested in working with a GVSU faculty member, please contact the Center for Scholarly and Creative Excellence at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be glad to assist you in making the connection.
