Adam Grant

Student, M.S. Enterprise Risk Management; SPS Student Senator, Columbia University Senate

Adam Grant is a native of Savannah, GA, and a graduate student at the School of Professional Studies. He is a Master's of Science candidate in the Enterprise Risk Management program. He also serves as the school's only student body Senator, representing SPS at all senate hearings. The Columbia University Senate is a University-wide legislature, representing faculty, students, and other constituencies. It makes policy on a range of issues that affect the entire University or more than one school, including educational programs and priorities, the budget, academic freedom and tenure, the conduct of research, the libraries, information technology, Columbia's external relations, student sexual misconduct, rules governing political demonstrations, and the welfare of faculty, students, and research officers. Trustee concurrence is required for acts of the Senate. Grant has a Bachelor's of Applied Science in Intelligence Studies and a minor in Spanish from the University of Arizona.

His professional career spans fourteen years of dedicated service as both a non-commissioned and commissioned officer, where he has been successful at both managing and leading. His skillsets revolve around him being a pragmatic and focused individual recognized for making seemingly impossible situations work. He has a proven and verifiable record for producing high-performance standards and enhancing productivity. He has a strong intrinsic desire to learn, contribute, and think innovatively continually. He's eager to meet professional challenges and contribute toward organizational growth.

Some of his career's most memorable moments have come from developing humanitarian relief guidance for the Department of Defense- and Department of State-led subject matter exchanges. He's also enjoyed engaging with neighboring countries in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean to contribute to regional and US security.

In his current role, he manages a $1B portfolio that provides mission support for range and launches operations, ensuring national space activities' vitality at the only launch base for DoD and commercial Atlas, Delta, SpaceX, Blue Origin, ULA, and NASA launch vehicles.
