Grand Valley's critical employees continue to keep campus moving forward through the COVID-19 pandemic. While most faculty and staff members are working from home, a core team of critical employees from various departments remains on campus.

A video, featuring President Philomena V. Mantella and several university leaders, offered messages of thanks to essential workers for keeping the university community clean and safe, providing frontline support so colleagues could deliver remote services, and allowing students to continue to learn. 

University leaders thanked the employees for juggling their own personal care, and the care of their loved ones, in order to care for fellow Lakers.
