Career Center supporting students virtually with job search

For many students, this time of year is full of job-searching. But this year, many employers aren't able to post new jobs or take on new employees. Read to see how the GVSU Career Center is helping students virtually during the COVID-19 Crisis: https://loom.ly/Z4kqFEc

Students navigate the search for an internship, summer job or entry-level position in their field.

Spectrum Health moves beds, equipment into CHS as contingency during COVID-19 pandemic

"As hard as it is, I think it’s an opportunity for us to all step up and lead in a way that calls us to the present and the future at the same time.” - President Mantella

Governor Whitmer recently toured Grand Valley's Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences alongside President Mantella and Tina Freese Decker, president and CEO of Spectrum Health. If needed, the building will become an alternative care site for Spectrum Health, housing up to 250 beds.

https://www.gvsu.edu/gvnext/2020/spectrum-health-moves-beds-equipment-into-chs-as-11452.htm“

Gov. Whitmer called the agreement between Spectrum Health and GVSU an all hands-on-deck strategy.

GVSU to provide space for hospital overflow if needed

Spectrum Health hospitals in Grand Rapids could use space inside one of Grand Valley’s facilities if the coronavirus pandemic results in patient overflow.

Confirmed cases of coronavirus COVID-19 in Michigan continued to climb over the weekend.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer

Governor Gretchen Whitmer

Today, I am issuing a “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order. It goes into effect tonight at midnight.

The goal here is simple: Stay home. Stay safe. Save lives. If we all stay at home, except for critical work and needs, we can mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Let me be clear: Your grocery stores will still be open. Your pharmacies will remain open. Your banks and credit unions will still be functioning. You can fill your car with gas.

The full list of critical services that will remain open is available at Michigan.gov/coronavirus.

I know this is difficult. I know that this is disruptive. But doing this will save lives. When we look back at this, we must be able to say we did everything we could. We will get through this together.
