Sarit Gluz became the Athletic Academic Coordinator in Sept. 2017 and provides Lewis & Clark student-athletes one-on-one support to succeed with their academic and athletic demands.
In her role, Gluz focuses on how to help student-athletes within the tenants of the Building ChamPIOns program, which focuses on student-athlete success in the classroom, competition, character and community. Some of the skills Gluz focuses on are study skills, stress and time management and academic planning. The goal of the discussions is to set specific ways for how student-athletes use their time during the season and outside of the season.
A 2009 graduate of Lewis & Clark, Gluz holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Hispanic Studies and competed for Pioneers swimming. As a Lewis & Clark alumnus, Gluz is able to relay her first-hand experience on how to succeed as a student-athlete on Palatine Hill.
Gluz supplies dedicated academic support to Lewis & Clark student-athletes, which is a rarity at the NCAA Division III level. Gluz's role is overseen by Dr. Kayleigh McCauley, who was formerly the Director of Student-Athlete Development. Now Lewis & Clark's Interim Associate Dean of Students/Director of Student Support Services, Dr. McCauley continues to provide support and remains invested in the success of Lewis & Clark student-athletes.
