The Academic Coaching & Success Program aims to assist students in developing themselves holistically to be best prepared to market their skills and passion throughout their academic careers and into their future endeavors. Professional academic coaches and trained peer coaches will utilize student development theory to engage students and guide their identity development through the stages of college.

This program is an amazing resource for students who could benefit from additional support in developing critical academic skills. With elements including goal setting, time management, study skills, and strengths development, our professional academic coaches assist each participant in building an action plan and the skills that will benefit them. Academic coaching is a collaborative process between the student, academic coach, and campus resources to build value to their education and self.

Early Alert    

Targeted Early Alert

The recently launched Early Alert program aims to provide timely and targeted support to students when they really need it. At key points across the scope of each term, instructors for targeted courses will receive progress report requests prompting them to submit an alert for any student that may be having difficulty. A coach will then schedule an initial meeting with each indicated student, to address any immediate concerns and develop a plan for necessary support moving forward. Targeted courses include those with historically high DFWQ rate as well as those that are foundational first year courses within each major.

Ad Hoc Early Alert

Outside of these targeted courses, anyone on campus (faculty, staff, or student) can submit an ad hoc alert at any time. If you see a student struggling.
