Grand View Student Center Named in Honor of Kent L. Henning

May 17, 2022

Grand View University is pleased to announce the renaming of the Student Center on campus. On April 29, 2022, the Board of Trustees directs that the name will now be The Kent L. Henning Student Center.

Kent L. Henning has served as President of Grand View University for twenty-two years. He announced his retirement last summer. Through his steadfast leadership, the university has grown substantially in size, scope and impact. The completion of the Student Center was a significant enhancement to Grand View University and marked the conclusion of a fifteen-year campus master plan initiated by President Henning. Henning reflects, “I am deeply touched and am grateful to the Board for the honor. It is particularly meaningful to me, because I have always drawn joy, energy, and renewal from my interactions with students.”

Christopher Littlefield, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, says “the naming of a university facility is an appropriate recognition for such a distinguished leader.” Physical signage will be installed this summer.
