About Grand Forum

Grand Forum is an educational outreach program for adults 55 and older and is a division of the Center for Adult and Continuing Studies at Grand Valley State University. Grand Forum provides the opportunity for individuals of diverse backgrounds to meet in an academic setting for the purpose of intellectual stimulation and social exchange.

Led by university faculty and administrators, community leaders, Grand Forum members, independent scholars and local professionals, topics are offered in such fields as the arts, business, current events, history and science.

Through presentations and discussions, held both on and off campus, Grand Forum provides a broad spectrum of stimulating programs in a setting that encourages lively discussion. An interest in learning is an essential part of membership.

Another feature of Grand Forum membership includes the monthly Grand Forum Book Discussion Group, which meets the first Wednesday of the month.

Membership in Grand Forum is $105 per person/year and allows you to attend as many events as you would like.
