Academic Coaching

Work with an Academic Coach to help you reach your academic goals.  Shannon McNeal and Elizabeth Myers are available to work with students by appointment. Academic Coaching is a one-on-one process where the student is the expert, and the Academic Coach is a supportive guide, helping the student address academic concerns and identify hurdles to success. Students who work with an Academic Coach tend to stay more motivated to accomplish goals, work smarter with effective study strategies, decrease stress, and learn to work through barriers.
