Success coaching is a teaching, learning, and empowering process wherein coaches guide and students decide.

Success Coaches are interested in:

  • Helping students make concrete plans to achieve academic goals

  • Helping students move toward independence

  • Providing proactive and reactive interventions to at-risk populations

  • Connecting students to resources

  • Establishing relationships
