Residential Academic Success Peer Coaches

June 17, 2019
The Division of Student Success welcomed Residence Life this month and is excited to announce a pilot program in the upcoming 2019-2020 academic year—Residential Academic Success Peer Coaches—to better serve the unmet needs of students living in residence halls. Student residents report increased need for informal advising regarding life goals, academic progress, on-going time management and life skills development to promote resilience, mindfulness and the management of daily stressors. In this pilot, trained peers will be utilized as academic success coaches and placed in residence halls in order to be accessible in real time and to provide more responsive prevention services when students experience stressors.
