Co-Curricular INT 100/201 Event Offerings

Supporting University-Wide Integrative Learning

The Co-Curricular program is an integral part of the INT 100 (Reflect, Connect, Engage) and INT 201 (Diversity in the U.S.) course curriculum.  Both classes serve Grand Valley's General Education Program and are core components of the Integrative Studies major. Searching for appropriate events and programs can be an arduous process, we hope to simply the process for faculty and students alike. The following page has been developed to help with the search process, by listing all  events with the INT 100/201 designations. It is the event organizers' responsibility to post their events(s) on the GVSU Campus Calendar. Links will be provided to events as they are posted. 

Unfortunately changes do occur to events. If event organizers do not let us know of these changes, we are unable to post them to our calendar. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Co-Curricular program enjoys working with organizations, to provide virtual programs and events with the INT 100/201 designation to enhance student growth and support connections between classroom-based learning outcomes and real-life opportunities. 

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the IRIS Department Main Office at (616)331-8020 or via email at
