Who We Are
The Grand Rapids Area Higher Education Network (GRAHEN) is a nonprofit (501c3) consortium composed of 13 local institutions of higher education that have degree-granting programs for adults. GRAHEN is based in Grand Rapids, Michigan and has been serving area corporations and school districts since 1997.
These schools work collaboratively to promote lifelong learning in West Michigan, foster discussion of issues in higher education, and encourage employers to support professional development of their employees through educational fairs.
Through corporate sponsorships and educational fairs, GRAHEN offers employers and employees convenient on-site access to the schools in the area that have programs for adults. Finding the right program has never been so easy!
Many employers know finding and training qualified employees is challenging. By promoting tuition reimbursement programs, employers can develop their workforce.
Prospective students realize the first step in getting started is finding the right fit between the student's needs and the school's programs, financial aid, location and schedules.
