Isabella Rasch - Profile 

After 18 years at AUT, Isabella Rasch says she is still dedicated to Pacific student success. 

“I try to understand the different strengths, challenges and learning needs of each student and work with this to help them advance their learning aspirations at AUT.  

“Students inspire me. With their enthusiasm and optimism about their futures, they motivate me to try my best for them. I’m committed to Pacific student success and usually finish each day with a real sense of achievement.”

Isabella says she really enjoys working with all Pacific students who are at different stages of their lives.

“One of my favourite things about being at AUT are the learning opportunities that it provides for all Pacific students and Pacific staff.”

Making a difference

As a Pacific Student Support Advisor with the Office of Pacific Advancement, Isabella takes an inter-disciplinary approach to supporting and working with students, staff and academic staff.

“I’m enjoying working collaboratively with lecturers on targeted papers to achieve parity for our Pacific students. 

“Based on sound student data and analysis we can start the conversation together by finding and sharing creative solutions that improve student engagement and academic study behaviours.

“I’m particularly interested in ensuring that our learning technologies support our student learning.”

“What gets me up in the morning is finding another piece of the puzzle to improve our learning systems and make a difference for our students.”
