10.1.2. Peer Success Coaching

Peer success coaching provides Oglethorpe students with a chance to work individually with a trained peer leader in the center for student success.  Peer success coaches are available to help students build and leverage strategies to improve their academic skills, confidence, and performance. Peer success coaches empower students to become successful and self-directed learners. Working one-on-one or in small group settings, coaches facilitate the identification and utilization of new learning tools and strategies to help students meet their academic and personal goals. Students partner with coaches to create their own action plan by identifying priorities and deadlines for the goals they set.

Peer success coaching is open to all undergraduate (TU and ADP) students. To ensure the full benefits of this experience, students are asked to commit to bi-weekly 30-minute  individual coaching sessions and a minimum of 1-hour weekly peer tutoring or writing consultation throughout the semester.
