Questions & Answers

What makes Grand View unique among other universities?
Grand View's communication program is a true learning laboratory where courses often collide with the real world. Our students produce work for real audiences (not just their professors) and learn what it means to be a professional by actually doing professional work (not just learning about it). 
What is your favorite part about working at Grand View?
Grand View is a small school in a big city — by Midwest standards anyway. Small class sizes ensure I get to know my students well, and the large metro area ensures I can connect my students with people and companies that can jumpstart their careers.
