Faculty and Staff
GVSU is committed to acting with integrity, operating transparently, and holding itself accountable for performance. This commitment is embedded in the strategic planning process, implemented in academic and operational practices, and outcomes shared in publications such as the Accountability Report. The University Policies website is the authoritative location for policies approved by the University’s Board of Trustees (formerly housed in the "Administrative Manual") and President’s Cabinet (formerly housed in the "Grand Valley Manual") and certain other policies such as those contained in the Faculty Handbook and Student Code.
GVSU also seeks to provide easy access to information we are required to disclose to current and prospective students, families, current and prospective employees and the community. The purpose of this website is to make required disclosures and other helpful resources readily available, packaged in a manner that's consistent with The Higher Education Act (as amended) and other Federal and State regulations.
Below are links to material of special interest to faculty and staff. Refer to the Students and Community page for information especially relevant for students, families and the general public. Please Contact Us with questions about the site or to make suggestions for improvements.
