Academic Coaching

Academic coaching is an interactive process that focuses on the personal relationship created between student and coach. An academic coach helps students navigate obstacles they may encounter during their academic career by using individualized and holistic approaches. They guide students in understanding and adapting their learning behavior by challenging students to think about personal and/or professional goals as related to academic/educational goals. Academic coaches help empower students to take responsibility for your own learning.


The goals of the academic coaching program:

  • Help students thrive by adopting a holistic and transformational approach. 
  • To help students become self-reflective and determine a path toward success. 
  • Equip and empower students with context-specific methods, processes, and integrated strategic approaches to learning, problem-solving, motivation, and time management.
  • To provide Academic Coaches with campus wide support as they identify trending barriers students face. 
  • To encourage intentional departmental and hopefully systemic change with awareness of barriers faced by subpopulations of our students
