Take the first steps toward incorporating academic success coaching into your advising model.
Learn how you can improve your advising model to include coaching conversations that go beyond basic course selection. Highlighting Florida Atlantic University, we will show how they created another “level” of advisors who serve as academic success coaches for their at-risk students. We will discuss how to identify and prioritize specific student populations for coaching and how to maximize campus partnerships to increase the odds of success for at-risk students. You will leave this training better equipped to update your advising model to include elements of academic success coaching.
This program will be helpful if your institution is looking for ways to work more closely with students, especially those who are at-risk, to improve their academic success and retention. This may apply most directly to directors of advising, academic coaching programs, and career services. Front-line student success professionals will also learn some nuts and bolts of how to use this model with their students.
