Grand Valley State University's Johnson Center is seeking answers to some of our community’s biggest questions. They are polling residents in the greater Grand Rapids area about their satisfaction with the city, their employment status, the economy, racial equality, and their reasons for staying in this area, among other important community questions.

They are asking those who live in the greater Grand Rapids area to take 15 minutes to affect the community. Responses will be used to help shape community programs and stimulate conversations about what issues are most important to the people of Grand Rapids.
