GVSU’s mission is to “empower learners in their pursuits, professions, and purpose.”  One way we do this is by creating conditions for students to become active, global citizens. GVSU is committed to full student voter engagement, as evidenced by President Mantella’s signature on the All In Campus Democracy Challenge’s Presidential Commitment to Full Student Voter Participation. As Lakers, we have the responsibility to actively engage in our communities and our democracy. If you are eligible, we encourage you to vote. The resources shared on this site are meant to provide education and support to our campus community.
