Phase 2: Refining Values, Vision and Mission
Draft Statements (April 2021)
The Reach Higher 2025 Steering Committee is happy to present to the GVSU community the latest draft Values, Vision, and Mission statements. These statements have emerged from our community’s 2019 Grand Huddles, as well as our more focused efforts of the past five months—soliciting and considering input from all segments of GVSU’s stakeholders.
These statements are GVSU’s public declaration of why we exist as an institution, and for whom. They state what animates our work now and in the future, and signal our priorities for improvement. Thus, the varied audiences for these statements include our students, faculty and staff, community partners, and the wider public.
At GVSU, learners are empowered in their mission and purpose. As a community, we advance equity, understanding, and learning as lifetime pursuits.
At GVSU, we prepare learners for the future they face and the communities they shape.
