Thomas J. Haas has been president of Grand Valley State University for 10 years!

Grand Valley’s fourth president is so appreciated by students, they’ve given him the affectionate nickname T. Haas. He has shown his obvious love for students by getting to know as many as he can personally, and T. Haas has created countless memories that will be cherished by the GVSU community.

Events took place to celebrate, including the T. Haas 10 City Tour. Additionally, The Tom and Marcia Haas Power of 10 Endowed Scholarship was created and is being supported by students and alumni who want to give back to their favorite university president. 

Don’t forget to sign the Memory Book and leave T. Haas a congratulatory message!
