Graduate Academic Coaches meet one-on-one with students on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to help them develop their academic skills and understand the expectations of academic work. Academic coaches assist students in establishing effective study, organizational, and planning habits; guide students to develop effective problem-solving, goal-setting, and self-advocacy skills; refer students to available campus resources; document sessions and refer to records of prior sessions on a regular basis; and attend training/professional development events.
