Administrative History

In 1969, GVSC through the aid of a grant from the Grand Rapids Foundation established the Urban Studies Institute to integrate urban affairs into Grand Valley’s collegiate programs. The Environmental Studies Institute was established to focus on the achievement and maintenance of a quality environment. The Urban and Environmental Studies Institute was formed by the combination of these two GVSC institutes in 1974 to focus resources and programming. Through research community service and teaching the Institute provided a bridge between collegiate programs and the urban and environmental concerns of the larger community.
