New grants administrator on deck in CASNR administration headquarters
An expert in grants administration with Texas Tech's International Center for Food Industry Excellence has been selected to lead this critical area within Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. Ann Ulmer officially stepped into her new post on June 1.
"The purpose of grants administration is to assist faculty in preparing successful grant proposals and support the research goals and objectives of the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources," said Dean Michael Galyean. "Ann Ulmer has a superb reputation as a grants administrator, and she should handle these duties well."
Ulmer, a native of Missouri, grew up on a diversified crop and livestock farm and has a passion for the agricultural industry. One of her primary goals here at CASNR is to assist faculty in their pursuit of funding and help identity other sources of support for faculty projects.
"I'm thrilled to be part of the CASNR community," Ulmer said. "This is a wonderful opportunity."
Prior to joining the CASNR staff, Ulmer worked as an agricultural economist and extension associate at the University of Missouri. She also worked as a research analyst at the University of Missouri's Institute of Public Policy. She received her bachelor's degree in agricultural business from Central Missouri State University and a master's degree in agricultural economics from Oklahoma State University.
