Faculty

At GVSU, the professors are dedicated to their roles as teachers, artists, and scholars. We value our place as educators to help ready students for their professions and lives after graduation. All of our majors and minors benefit from working with faculty members who are professionally active in the scholarly and creative communities. The questions and ideas that fuel the faculty’s research efforts translate into enthusiasm for the material that they teach, respect for inquiry, and an awareness of diversity in current practices.
