Jennifer Grasso serves as a Foundation Relations officer. In this role, she strategically engages, cultivates, solicits and stewards private and community foundation support for university priorities. In addition, she coordinates with faculty and staff to respond to funding opportunities and needs.
Jennifer began working at Kent State University in January 2018. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from Kenyon College, a Master of Urban Planning, Design and Development from Cleveland State University and a Juris Doctor from Cleveland State University.
Jennifer’s favorite thing about Kent State is that one day she can be talking with faculty about FANUC robots and the next about supportive services for first-generation college students. Every day is different, but one thing remains the same – she appreciates being able to help others pursue their dreams and passions.
