About Me

MarcQus Wright

My blog and website focus on my passions and main areas of interest. These areas usually include, but are not limited to, higher education, personal and professional development, African Americans, and current events.

I serve as the Director of the TRIO Student Support Services program (SSS) at Grand Valley State University*. In this role I work with first-generation and limited-income students. Our goal is to help our students acclimate to college life, graduate, and attain employment or entry to graduate school. In addition to my primary role at GVSU I also serve as a student organization advisor, staff mentor for the Black Male Scholars Initiative, and serve on the Advisory Board for GVSU Men In Action.

Outside of GVSU I enjoy helping high school students gain access to a college education. I assist these students with applications, essays, financial aid, entrance exams, college-course preparation, and cultural transitioning.

Additionally, I assist individuals and organizations with professional development in order to enhance personal growth and organizational effectiveness. This includes diversity education and team building.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, a Master’s degree in Training and Development, and a certificate in Project Management all from Illinois State University. I am also a certified True Colors® facilitator. Currently, I am pursuing my Doctorate in Educational Leadership at Eastern Michigan University.

I reside in Kentwood, Michigan with my wife Tawanna and our two kids, Mariah and Malcolm.
