From Claudia Sauz, who is the Student Success Coach for Transfer Student Success:

Claudia Student Success Coach

"You matter! As your student success coach, I am here to provide support for your journey as you navigate through your college experience. Even if you're not entirely certain about your goals yet, that's perfectly fine—it's all part of the process. I want to work with you to reach your unique goals and aspirations within academics and other areas of life.  

I started at Salt Lake Community College then transferred and earned my B.S. degree in Writing and Rhetoric Studies at the University of Utah.

What truly brings me joy is working individually with students. I love being able to dedicate my undivided attention to you, to witness your growth and decision-making process, and anything that comes up along the way, I'm here for it!"
