Grand View University houses The Jacobson Institute (The JI), which was established in 2008 with a gift from the late Dick Jacobson to improve the education system through innovation. Grand View recently refocused its Jacobson Institute to meet not only innovation through education but accelerate a mindset to support workforce needs in 2030 and beyond. The JI acts as tomorrow’s future global workbench and focuses on equipping learners at all levels with the right skills at the right time to improve career outcomes.
