Laker Lifetime Learning (L3) Commitment

Even with so much uncertainty in the world right now, we want to emphasize that nothing will change Grand Valley’s commitment to our graduates. We recognize the challenges they face and are ready to support them now and throughout their lifetimes.

One way we're already helping is through Laker Lifetime Learning (L3), our comprehensive and holistic network of services and resources that reinforce our commitment to our graduates' continued learning. It's one of the things that sets us apart from other universities --  we'll always be along side you, and all of our alumni, ready to help you reach your next goals. No matter what stage of your life or career, you can turn to us for a lifetime of support in three important areas:

  • Financial Resources - When it comes time to go back to school for a graduate degree, a second bachelor's degree, a digital badge, or an online certificate, we step up and repay your loyalty and confidence in Grand Valley with significant and creative financial assistance, including graduate assistantships and research grants, and our one-of-a-kind L3 account that puts $1,000 aside for every graduate to use for future classes at Grand Valley.   
  • Career Support - Our Career Center works with students and alumni exploring the world-of-work, planning and re-planning their career paths, preparing professional materials, and identifying ways to build professional networks. Connecting early and often with your dedicated career advisor increases confidence when pursuing your goals. Whether you are pursuing a certificate, undergraduate, or advanced degree, the Career Center will always be available to support you.
  • Alumni Networking - You become a lifetime member of the GVSU Alumni Association the day you earn your diploma and we take our responsibilities to our growing alumni base seriously. We'll hook you up with civic, social, and professional networking opportunities and local and national clubs and chapters so you'll always have a supportive group with whom to share your Laker pride.

Our Laker Lifetime Learning commitment prepares you for whatever comes next. That’s the Laker Effect and our commitment to all Laker alumni.
