The Laker Family Network is Grand Valley's parent and supporter resource. We look forward to partnering with you to support your student's success in their educational journey.

Be a mentor and partner in your student’s college experience by having conversations about academics, finances, belonging, wellness, and safety and use the Support tab to help your student connect with the appropriate campus services. Supporters with enrolled students will receive a monthly e-newsletter including information about how you can get involved and further enrich your student’s time on campus and beyond.

We look forward to getting to know you and are grateful to be a part of your Laker's Grand Valley journey!
