Jeff Keson, Graduate Assistant

Jeff Keson is currently serving as the Graduate Assistant for the Education Support Program (TRiO/SSS). Before joining Grand Valley State University, he has worked as a social media consultant and developer for a university and in a small, rural high school in mid-Michigan.

Prior to his work experience, Jeff attended Central Michigan University where he earned degrees in photography (BFA), anthropology and art history (BS). As an undergrad, he was involved with Greek Life, academic clubs, volunteered as a lab assistant in the photo dark room, worked as a staff assistant in the Leadership Safari program and even underwent a brief stint on the club fencing team.

Within the Educational Support Program, he enjoys working with students as they further develop their academic plan. "Most people don't have a 'Point A to Point B' plan; we might think we do, but there's usually a few twist and turns along the way." He looks forward to the inaugural semester of the ESP registered student organization, more leadership development programs and service trips.
