What Is "I am Grand Valley"?


Coordinated by the Office of Student Life, "I am Grand Valley" is a leadership recognition program for GVSU students.  Since 2003-2004, the program recognizes student leaders who display and utilize strong leadership skills that contribute to the campus and beyond.  As essential elements of the University community, these students include student employees, leaders in student organizations, resident assistants, students that excel in the classroom, and so on. Faculty, staff and students nominate students through a simple, noncompetitive nomination process that is designed to include many GVSU students. The popular I am Grand Valley t-shirts given to and worn by these students encourages campus involvement and student leadership.
