What is Academic Coaching?
Academic Coaching is an ongoing partnership between student and professional coach. It focuses on enhancing a student’s academic skills, promote self-advocacy, and increase a student’s confidence. In one-on-one conversations, the student and coach will work together to identify the student’s unique learning strengths and growth opportunities. During these meetings, each student will be able to develop a unique plan to achieve their academic goals.
Why is Academic Coaching important?
The coach is here to support and guide students through the obstacles that may arise during their academic careers. First-year students may benefit from coaching on academic and study skills, while seniors may need coaching on time management to accommodate classes, internships, interviews and job fairs. The program’s goal is to create positive and effective habits that lead to academic and professional success.
