About Grand Valley State University

Grand Valley State University educates students to shape their lives, their professions, and their societies. The university contributes to the enrichment of society through excellent teaching, active scholarship, and public service.

Grand Valley State University’s Strategic Plan 2016-2021 is grounded by a thorough, timely environmental scan undertaken in 2013 and 2014.  During this process, the current and anticipated factors most likely to impact the University in the years ahead were identified, including demographic, economic and cultural trends affecting higher education; demographic, educational, economic and social data from West Michigan, statewide, the nation and world; information about the current and projected landscape of higher education in the U.S. and abroad; the technology trends most likely to affect the institution’s pedagogical, administrative and management functions; and in-depth information about GVSU’s current successes and challenges, including the voluminous data available from the institution’s dashboard and its updates from the Strategic Plan 2010-2015.
