Welcome our newest Academic Advisor, Rachel Luebbert

September 24 2019

We’re so excited that joining the team of brilliant and dedicated student advocates is CFA alum, Rachel Luebbert!

“Our academic advisors provide integral components of our Create Success Initiative, which is our program dedicated to facilitating student success,” said Liz Leckie, the CFA’s Associate Dean for Undergraduate Student Affairs. “And we’re looking forward to continuing our tradition of strong evidence-based advising with Rachel on our team.”

Academic advisors are educators and problem solvers who advocate for students as they navigate their personal journeys through higher education and attain their academic goals. Through inclusion and connection, academic advisors open doors to new opportunities for self-awareness and growth, empowering students to define their roles as citizens within local and global communities.

Rachel graduated from the University of Utah with a BFA in Modern Dance, a BA in Spanish, and a minor in Business. Upon leaving Salt Lake, Rachel worked at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival to develop accessible programming at this long running festival. Later, she moved to DC where she worked as an arts administrator, dance teacher, and stage manager. Outside of work, Rachel loves experiencing arts events and museums, traveling, reading, and creating dance work. Rachel is so excited to be back in Salt Lake working with the incredible students of the College of Fine Arts.

“I came to academic advising because I am passionate about the value of an arts education and the advocacy of student success,” Luebbert said. “As an advisor, I aspire to help students navigate the University based on their individualized needs. I value connecting students with opportunities and resources that are meaningful and important to their holistic experience.”

Help us welcome Rachel!
