IT BEGINS HERE

Grand Valley faculty members love to teach. In fact, unlike most schools, you will never have a class taught by a teaching assistant or graduate assistant — professors teach every class.

That, combined with small class sizes, a student-friendly faculty-to-student ratio, and faculty members who are actively engaged in their disciplines, means a better classroom experience with more one-on-one instruction and more opportunities for industry experience and connections.

Licensed to Succeed

Another example of how well-prepared Grand Valley State University graduates are to enter the professional world is the outstanding pass rate on professional licensure exams.
