Student Engagement and Success

The Office of Student Engagement and Success in the College of Health and Human Services is a learner-centered, relationship-based support program designed to help students reach their full academic potential. Because we believe student success must address the whole individual, initiatives are designed to stimulate growth opportunities for students in their academic, financial, social, occupational, physical and emotional lives.

academic success COACHINg

Academic coaching is a program designed to empower students by identifying their learning needs and discovering the pathway to greater academic and collegiate achievement.

A trained academic coach will meet with you one-on-one to help examine perceived barriers to success, develop a personalized plan of action, learn and implement new strategies and skills, and take full advantage of campus resources.

Meeting with an academic coach is one of the best ways to personalize your education and get on track academically. You can meet with an academic coach once or on a weekly basis to help increase your confidence and achieve your goals.
