Jesse Grant-Diamond Honoree

At seven years old, Jesse Grant declared his goal to become a student affairs professional. Now, forty years later, Dr. Grant shines as he fully lives out his passion for service, education, and access in student affairs and higher education. As the Dean of Students at Bemidji State University, Jesse focuses on those things that keep him going. “I do all I can to make sure college students make progress toward the degree and toward their life goals.” With professional experiences at several universities spanning institutional types, his work has contributed to areas including crisis management, multicultural affairs, student conduct, greek life, housing, academic success, student engagement, enrollment management, new student programs, peer mentoring, and dining services – to name a few! As a fervent educator, Dr. Grant regularly engages the Association, presenting at regional and national conventions and serving on commissions. Jesse is a mentor and role model for both students and professional colleagues. Congratulations to Dr. Jesse Grant for this esteemed honor!

About This Campaign

The Diamond Honoree Program, established by the Foundation in 1999 is both a recognition program and a fund raising activity. Those nominated for consideration are recognized for their outstanding and sustained contributions to higher education and to student affairs.

The funds raised on behalf of the Honorees are used for ACPA and Foundation activities in keeping with the Association’s purposes and strategic goals. Since its inception in 1999 the program has generated over $100,000.
