Questions & Answers

What makes Grand View unique among other universities?
For me, Grand View is unique because it offers the opportunity for students and faculty to develop academic relationships over several courses, in contrast to the fleeting, one-time transactional approach often experienced at the extra-large universities. 
What is your favorite part about working at Grand View?
My favorite part about teaching at Grand View is the opportunity it offers to transfer knowledge and to provide a long-term positive influence on young people, and those who come to higher-education in mid-career.
