Stan Drasutis, M.A.C.L. (he/him/his)
My name is Stan Drasutis (pronounced draw-soo-tis). I've lived in several states other than Utah including: California, Texas, and New Mexico. I love to travel, meet new people, and experience new cultures. I am privileged to have had the opportunity to return to school in 2014 after many successful years as a managerial professional in the private sector. My experience growing up working in the restaurant business helped me learn the hard way, that sometimes one can only go so far without a formal education.
My educational journey was by no means a straight path. I had many roadblocks and detours along the way, including a battle with ADHD. The real turning point was when I set foot on the University of Utah campus in 2014. I was surrounded by people that took an interest in me as an individual and gave me the support I needed to steer myself in the right direction. I graduated from the University of Utah in August of 2016 with degrees in Sociology, and Peace & Conflict Studies. I continued at Westminster College, and earned a Master of Arts in Community Leadership in 2019.
My role as your Student Success Coach is to listen to you, to ensure that we put together a solid plan that keeps you on the road to academic success, while also maximizing your college experience. I value your time and understand that academics are only part of your college experience. We can meet on campus at a time/location convenient for you, or on Zoom!
