The 1896 Club

Kent HenningPreparing students to succeed in their chosen careers, contribute to their communities and build satisfying lives is what Grand View is about.

The success of the university's graduates is unparalleled. Every year for a decade and a half, nearly 100% of the most recent graduating class was placed within six months of graduation - employed or enrolled in graduate school. Much of that success is due to the challenging classroom environment.

In the most recent National Survey of Student Engagement, Grand View achieved higher scores than all of its comparison groups for presenting students with an academic challenge. But the rest can be chalked up to the frequent and intensive practical workplace experiences nearly all Grand View students gain - internships, clinicals, and practicums. In fact, nearly 90% of students graduate with at least one such experience.
