Peer Academic Coaches
In the fall of 2020, The Office of Student Success (OSS) launched a new intervention program initiative to support the retention and successful matriculation of at-risk and vulnerable student populations. This effort led by the Academic Intervention/ Retention Specialist would recruit, hire, and train PACs (Peer Academic Coaches) to work one-on-one and in small groups providing intervention services to identified at-risk students.
Who Are They
PACs (Peer Academic Coaches) work one-on-one and in small groups providing intervention services to identified at-risk students. Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors meeting the requirement for employment with no major judicial infractions were hired to work one-on-one and in small groups with students within each academic college.
Who Do They Serve
The PAC and intervention program service First-year students with Identified At-Risk Indicators
What They Do
Our PACs have many duties here on campus, and these duties allow them to connect with Students in Need with the resources and tools they need to thrive.
