GVSU Professional Education

NOTICE: In light of the current situation, Grand Valley State University has called for the temporary closure of all non-essential campus buildings and learning spaces. The University has also called for instruction to be delivered online through at least the start of May. 

As such, the CSO has decided to cancel all in-person workshops scheduled through June 2020. Some of our scheduled workshops may be offered virtually in April and May. Those offerings will be shared here in the coming weeks. 

During the 2019-2020 school year, the GVSU Charter Schools Office will offer a wide variety of workshops. These workshops are available to ALL educators from ALL schools at NO cost
