Student Success Coaching

Our appreciative advising model is different from traditional advising in that is a student-centered and holistic approach to helping students explore their strengths, dreams, academic, career, and life goals into an articulated four year plan that links the curricular and co-curricular experiences.

Our Mission:

To coach students in the development and implementation of their personalized academic success plans

Role of Student Success Coach
