LAKERS TOGETHER: ‘We can’t wait to meet you.’ One constant is our passion for teaching. Watch a faculty member talk about your learning experience.
On March 19, 2019, the Honors College welcomed back longtime director Jeff Chamberlain, Dr. J., for a ceremony naming the Multipurpose Room in the Niemeyer Learning & Living Center in his honor. Director Gilles and President Haas offered words of praise and gratitude to Dr. J’s many valuable contributions to GVSU and the Honors College, and both current and former students crowded the room to offer thanks of their own. Besides adding signage in the hallway leading to the room and installing a portrait of Dr. J along with text describing his major accomplishments, the Honors College presented to Dr. J a handmade statue from Ghana to mark the event.
