Talladega College Partners With Grand Valley State University in Michigan

Historically Black Talladega College in Alabama has announced a partnership with Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. Under the agreement, students who graduate from Talladega College with a degree in education will have a pathway to earn master’s degrees in education, school counseling, instructional technology, and instruction and curriculum at Grand Valley State University.

Grand Valley State University, located just west of Grand Rapids in the western part of the state, enrolls more than 19,000 undergraduate students and just over 3,000 graduate students, according to the most recent data available from the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up just 4 percent of the undergraduate student body.

Talladega College President Gregory Vincent said, “We are excited to develop the partnership with Grand Valley State University as part of our strategic plan to ensure our students have increased opportunities to attend graduate school. This partnership is especially valued because GVSU is so aligned with our goals and values, including our student-first perspective, and is a university that recognizes the merits HBCU graduates bring to graduate and professional school.”
