Welcome to the Public, Nonprofit and Health Administration (PNHA) Program at GVSU!

PNHA educates students for lives of active citizenship as contributing members of their local, regional, national, and global communities, and professional careers in government, nonprofit and health care organizations.

GVSU PNHA aspires to be a pre-eminent source for community and public service education by providing an innovative, professional curriculum with dedicated and inspired teaching, scholarship, and service to the community. PNHA is committed to developing in our students the capacities for ethical judgment, critical thinking, and the skills and leadership necessary to fulfill multiple roles as effective managers and public servants.

As part of the School of Public, Nonprofit, Health, Hospitality, and Tourism Management (SPNHTM), learn from faculty members who are engaged in the community and philanthropy and actually work in the world they teach. Professors are invested in the lives of their students and encourage a culture of collegiality and collaboration.
