Building on the momentum of our Grand Rapids trip, we’re excited to visit Lansing on Tuesday, May 15.
The trip is highlighted by a presentation that we’ll make to the Michigan House of Representatives Commerce Committee, talking about our research, and our work to see the “real Michigan” and educated our fellow students about the opportunities found here. Talent retention is critical for our state’s continued growth and we look forward to sharing our thoughts and opinions with this group of 19 elected state officials.
In addition to members of the Van Andel Millennial Board, we’ll be joined on the House panel by Carol Van Andel, Adrian College President Dr. Jeffrey Docking and Crain’s Detroit Business Publisher Mary Kramer.
We’ll also tour downtown Lansing, take part in the Michigan Colleges Foundation board of directors meeting and attend a reception with state legislators.
We’re really looking forward to our visit and hope that it will provide additional information about the “real Michigan” and its opportunities that we can share with our peers back on campus.
Look for updates in the coming days on our visit.
