According to the school, Grand View University engages, equips, and empowers students to fulfill their ambitions and to serve society. Believing that each person possesses natural strengths and developing abilities which can lead to a full and satisfying life, the University admits and educates students who represent a wide range of ages, achievements, and expectations. Integrating a liberal arts education with career preparation in an urban learning environment, Grand View focuses on the development of the whole person, mind body and spirit and on preparing students for responsible citizenship in their communities and in a diverse and changing world. The University’s underlying Lutheran perspective weaves faith, spirituality and questioning through the entire fabric of a Grand View education, encouraging students to go beyond simple answers and easy dreams. Students from all walks of life and all faith traditions discover not just their career paths but themselves, and graduates enjoy success in both career and life. Grand View stands out from other colleges partly because of its strong and active partnerships with leading businesses and organizations in central Iowa, which has led to challenging internships and to nearly 100 percent of students finding jobs right after graduation or continuing their education, every year for the past fifteen years. Grand View is known for its ability to connect students with exciting and challenging career opportunities. Employers see graduates who are well educated for their chosen careers, graduates who contribute from the very first day, graduates who can articulate and demonstrate leadership, critical thinking and a broad perspective.\r\n
