Laker Familia

Grand Valley State University’s Laker Familia is a network of students who self-identify as Latino/Hispanic. With the assistance of faculty and staff, students are exposed to a variety of academic, professional, social, and cultural activities. The program begins with a three day interactive Laker Familia orientation. Once the academic year begins, students are transitioned into the Laker Familia program which operates under four primary pillars:

  • Mentorship
  • Academic Excellence
  • Leadership Development
  • Community Service

The program is specifically designed to introduce students to resources that will support their academic, cultural, and emotional well-being. Laker Familia promotes and facilitates meaningful interactions with the goal of improving academic success, retention, and graduation.

*Laker Familia is open to all GVSU students.
