Views Forward Project
Grand View University has been a proud and committed resident of the east side of Des Moines since its founding in 1896. Campus improvements in the last decade have enhanced the University’s footprint along East 14th Street and surrounding streets.
The Views Forward Project recognizes the impact the University has had on the neighborhood and aims to bring continued positive change through genuine and sustainable projects, programs and events that involve residents and businesses. The Project will work with neighborhood leaders representing Highland Park, Union Park, Capitol Park, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Park to identify and develop initiatives that meet community needs and expand opportunities for Grand View students to serve, learn and build ties to the east side of Des Moines.
Views Forward Project Ticket Program
Grand View boasts championship-caliber athletics and entertaining cultural offerings. Through the Views Forward Project Ticket Program, anyone living in the Highland Park, Union Park, Capitol Park, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Park neighborhood associations is invited to attend Grand View athletic, theater, music or cultural performances for free. Tickets must be reserved to avoid paying admission.
