Academic Coaches Needed to Enhance First-Year Student Success
July 11, 2017
The Housing & Residence Life Student Success Program is seeking coaches for our third year of Academic Coaching. The program promotes the ongoing efforts to enhance first-year academic success and retention at the University of Idaho.
The Academic Coaching program is an opportunity for new students to connect with our university administrators and staff to develop academic goals, access educational resources, and transition successfully into college. Students volunteer to participate in this opportunity. Additionally, this program assists new students in developing and implementing various strategies for some of the following: time management, goal setting, dealing with stress and procrastination, campus involvement, and social integration.
Being a coach will require that you meet with the first year student five times throughout the semester. Student Success & Retention Coordinator Anastasia Seaborn will host training sessions, coaches meetings and materials for you to be a successful coach to our first year students.
If you are interested in participating as an Academic Coach and assisting a first-year student please sign up now. Before you begin, Seaborn would like to meet to discuss strategies, topics and provide materials. If you are interested in becoming an Academic Coach, please email Anastasia Seaborn, firstname.lastname@example.org.
