For Unit Heads

2. Presidential Honor Roll Data- Last Call

 

Thank you to those units that updated the Presidential Honor Roll information related to student service learning, research, internships, and interfaith opportunities.  If there are units who still wish to submit its updated information, this is the final week before the College sends its report to the Office of the Provost. Please contact Mary Schutten schutmar@gvsu.edu  if the unit’s information provided by CLAS should be resent.
