Leaders from Grand Valley State and Alabama State universities signed an articulation agreement April 25 that establishes pathways for degree completion for ASU students who are interested in pursuing master's degrees at GVSU.
Alabama State is an Historically Black College/University (HBCU) in Montgomery. This is the third agreement Grand Valley has signed with an HBCU. President Philomena V. Mantella said these agreements serve multiple purposes. Read more about Grand Valley's HBCU/HSI Consortium.
"By inviting and then supporting students from Alabama State who want to pursue advanced degrees, Grand Valley is enriching and continuing to diversify our community," Mantella said. "Public education must partner in new ways to expand opportunities for one and other and, ultimately, our students. We are so pleased to welcome our colleagues and, soon, their students to Grand Rapids."
The agreement will begin in the Fall 2022 semester and, initially, supports Alabama State students who want to earn master's degrees in cybersecurity or applied computer science from Grand Valley.
