About

History

Jay and Betty Van Andel founded Van Andel Institute (VAI) in 1996.

Education

The Graduate School thrives within the state-of-the-art facilities of Van Andel Research Institute, with access to extensive core technology support and the resources of collaborators in Grand Rapids, Michigan and around the country.

West Michigan is the perfect place for anyone interested in enjoying the outdoors. Between the beaches, parks and trails, there are options for everyone to explore or enjoy.

The city lies only 30 miles from the Gold Coast — a 300-mile stretch of Lake Michigan coastline dotted with wineries, farms and other unique day destinations. North on this coastline lives The Sleeping Bear Dunes, named “Good Morning America’s” Most Beautiful Place in America. Let’s not forget the beach itself, which is perfect for a relaxing afternoon or even catching some waves on the world’s fifth-largest lake.
