My name is Bonnie Ulmer-DeGraves and I am new to the TRIO/Student Support Services Program. I
have been here since fall 2022.
Prior to coming to GRCC I worked at Grand Valley State University as the Associate Director of
Admissions for 30+ years. Part of my work at GVSU involved helping incoming transfer matriculate from
a community college to a four-year university. As a first-generation college student, I understand the
challenges that some students may face.
I completed both my bachelor and master degrees at Grand Valley State University. During my free time
I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling throughout the U.S and Europe.
