Coaching for Student Success (CSS) is a program offered by the Academic Excellence Programs office in the Academic Success Center. The program matches undergraduate students with a trained academic coach who will meet with the student weekly and assist them in their quest to be successful students. CSS coaches are committed to providing outstanding service to our students by utilizing the theory and practice of Appreciative Advising.
Coaching focuses on personal development, time management, goal setting, motivation, study skills, resource connection, and campus engagement. Understanding that each student is unique, the role of the coach is to guide the student in the discovery process and help the student reach his or her full potential.
