Q. What is the Knowledge Market?


The Knowledge Market is a collaborative partnership between the Speech LabWriting Center, and University Libraries


We view the GVSU campus as a community of students, all with their own unique processes, purposes, and goals. The Knowledge Market should enable students to achieve their academic goals toward full participation in our campus community as well as in larger academic, professional, and global contexts. Because students have different expectations, processes, and audiences, the Knowledge Market must provide services that support and enhance one another, such as:

  • One-to-one consultations to support any student on campus working on any project
  • Utilize an inquiry-based Socratic approach to guide students to discover their own
    knowledge, ideas, and opinions rather than direct or instruct students towards specific
  • Cross train staffs so they can knowledgeably communicate, collaborate, and connect
    students with other Knowledge Market partners
  • Collaboratively develop new programming, resources, and trainings to adapt to student needs
  • Participate as an equal stakeholder in an administrative and philosophical collaboration with
    other Knowledge Market partners
