Academic Coaching and Workshops

Peer Success Coaches  

Peer Success Cacohes is a program providing an alternate means of support where tutoring may not be wanted, an appropriate approach, or not offered in a course

Peer Coaches help students be successful by:

  • building academic skills (e.g. time management, note-taking, etc)
  • building help-seeking behaviors (e.g. navigate office hours and campus resources)
  • helping students be self-regulated learners (e.g. learn strategies to manage test anxiety and imposter syndrome)
