What is Academic Coaching? 

Academic Coaching provides a supportive learning environment to help students develop skills in areas directly and indirectly related to academics.  We offer 30 minute one-on-one appointments, 1 hour “Team Coaching” appointments, and Walk-Ins on Fridays.  The ultimate focus of each meeting is to influence positive academic performance and continued professional growth.  Academic Coaching allows for improved performance in the following areas:
