Grand View University is a private, not-for-profit liberal arts college affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Founded in 1896, the university is located in Des Moines, Iowa and hosts 2,200 students in 40 undergraduate majors, seven certificate programs, two post-baccalaureate certificates, five pre-professional preparation programs, and three master's programs.
On November 6, 2008, Grand View changed its name from Grand View College to Grand View University in order to better reflect the institution's status as a master's-granting institution, and as an effort to shed the perception that Grand View is still a two-year college, which has not been the case since August 1, 1975.
