What is ACADEMIC coaching?
Coaching is not unique to athletics. It is an opportunity to encourage, support and motivate.
CASA Academic Coaches are prepared to support your efforts, to encourage you when it feels overwhelming and impossible and to motivate you to achieve your highest potential.
CASA helps each student find success by
Working with students to clarify and decode their strengths, interests, and values, enabling them to chart a realistic path to success.
Actively listening to students’ issues, concerns, problems, questions, and providing guidance based on what works for them.
Assisting students in developing their coping sensibilities, problem-solving skills, and decision-making approach to meet their goals.
Providing clear, accurate, and consistent information regarding the University’s policies, procedures, regulations and resources.
Helping students develop an education plan consistent with their career aspirations or chosen vocation, and monitoring their progress toward fulfilling their plan.
- Encouraging and motivating students to excel beyond their self-imposed limitations by allowing them to see the endless possibilities ahead.
