Grand Valley State University (GVSU) launched an initiative with Fort Valley State University (FVSU) in an effort to increase diversity within its student population and within the STEM industry.

The collaborative effort will allow students in STEM fields to earn a master’s degree from GVSU’s Padnos College of Engineering and Computing after completing their bachelor’s degrees at FVSU. 

“This collaboration will allow our students to benefit from the best strengths of both universities — receiving a solid foundation in science and technology and exposure to specialized courses, research and connections,” said FVSU President, Paul A. Jones. “We are immensely proud and excited to partner with GVSU in this opportunity to further our long-standing commitment of preparing students for successful careers in STEM.”

Students will be able to attend GVSU through the agreement as soon as Fall 2021 and can earn GVSU master’s degrees in various engineering disciplines, computer science, cybersecurity, or data science and analytics
