Lara Bauer

Community Associate

Lara comes to the Community Foundation of Utah after spending the last 7 years in higher education administration at Western Governors University and the University of Utah. She has a B.S. in Psychology and a Master of Public Administration from the University of Utah and has called Salt Lake City her home for the last 15 years. She is passionate about the power of the nonprofit sector to  transform societies for the better. She is excited for the opportunity to engage with her community on a deeper level and strengthen CFU’s connections with the organizations and people that make Utah great. 

In her personal time, Lara loves to be outside as much as possible or curled up with her nose in a good book. She loves running, hiking, biking, snowboarding, camping and enjoying all of the beautiful scenery Utah has to offer.
