Gabrielle Sykes-Casavant

One of the amazing benefits about being part of such a diverse and large university like the University of Arizona are the endless opportunities and experiences available to you. It also means there’s a lot of information coming your way!

In the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences (we call it “CALS”), our goal is to ensure you have a personalized college experience that starts before day one, continues through graduation, and guides you as you launch your professional career.

What does that mean for you? Connect with us early and often. Let us know what matters to you. We’re eager to know you, know your story, and – together – we’ll create a path that moves you closer to your goals. When you’re part of the CALS community you’re not alone: our people, supports, networks, and resources are allies in your journey – wherever that journey takes you.

As the Director of Undergraduate Strategic Initiatives Gabrielle’s approach to supporting an integrated student experience is guided by her 20 year professional career at the University of Arizona, her focus on connecting people and information to spark action, and her own academic journey as a first-generation, non-traditional transfer student.
