Alumnus on surgical team performs groundbreaking in-utero surgery

Teamwork makes the dream work: A Grand Valley alumnus was on a surgical team that successfully completed the first in-utero correction for a spina bifida birth defect at Cleveland Clinic.

Playing football may not exactly be brain surgery, but pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Kaine Onwuzulike said the two have more in common than people may think.

An update from GVSU Student Senate regarding the Pledge of Allegiance.
11/19/2019

An update from GVSU Student Senate regarding the Pledge of Allegiance.

Pursuant to Student Senate Constitution Section II.03(a), the Pledge of Allegiance has been reinstated. We thank all the students and community members that have reached out to share constructive dialogue.

11/19/2019

The university is aware of the community response to a vote regarding the Pledge of Allegiance taken by Grand Valley’s Student Senate last week.

Grand Valley’s Student Senate is a student-run organization which sets its own agenda and conducts its own debates. The vote was not unanimous and student senators are actively debating how to respect varying viewpoints on reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at senate meetings.

Discussion, debate and even disagreements are part of the learning process and life at the university. The student senators are absorbing the reaction to the vote and its effect on the university and the community. They are working together to devise a compromise that will show respect for differences on the senate, but one that is acceptable to those who value reciting the Pledge and what it represents.

Student Life advising staff is working with the student senators to help them consider options and think through the process.
