Laker students, alumni, faculty & staff share their Global GVSU Story.
Two things landed me at Grand Valley and these are: Special Education
and President Gerald Ford. Upon discovering that president Ford
signed the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (Public Law
94-142), then I decided that I must go to school at the city of birth
of the former president since to me, he opened the door of education
to individuals with disabilities. I arrived the U.S. from Nigeria
in 2013 for my master's in Special Education and completed my program
in December 2014. Upon finishing my degree, I worked briefly in
Wisconsin as a Disability Specialist. Currently, I work at
Metropolitan State University of Denver as Accessibility Coordinator
as well as an affiliate faculty in the department of Special Education.
