"At Grand Valley, I earned a Masters in Public Administration with a focus in Nonprofit Leadership. The program provided me with an understanding of the scope of the nonprofit sector in Michigan, and has helped to inform my role within it. While classes certainly provided information and understanding that has shaped me as a manager, I found myself in classes with peers who are some of the most engaged and innovative nonprofit thought leaders in our region. I have continued to stay engaged in the network created through these courses, and am excited to be a part of what is sure to be bold future for Michigan."
