GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Officials at Grand Valley State University announced Thursday that they will ask the board of trustees to approve an 11-acre, multimillion dollar purchase near downtown Grand Rapids to expand their health campus.

If approved, the property, located northeast of downtown, will provide the university a total of 18 acres to expand health programs.  They currently have roughly 5,000 students studying in nursing and health-related fields.

The proposed land is bordered by Hastings and Trowbridge streets and Clancy and College avenues, according to the university.  The board will meet Friday, Nov. 1 at Grand Valley’s Detroit Center to vote.
