All freshman Student Support Services participants, plus sophomore students not in good academic standing, will participate in a peer coaching program.
Because we believe that good grades are not the only thing needed for college success, the peer coaching curriculum is designed to proactively mentor participants to strengthen non-cognitive skills including:
- Academic behaviors and mindsets
- Improve social skills
- Increase feelings of self-belonging
Mentor groups will meet frequently throughout the year, attending and participating in a wide variety of cultural, social, and academic programs. As an added benefit, participants who successfully complete the peer coaching, along with general program requirements, may be eligible for an SSS Scholarship
