The Academic Coaching program at the Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) focuses on individual student needs to develop independent student success.
Academic coaching provides assistance outside of content areas for students in need of organizational and study skills based assistance. Coaching helps students develop independent methods for success, including developing academic plans or working in line with CAE support services like the University Writing Center to help you with planning out your research paper timeline.
The CAE offers peer academic coaching throughout the semester for free in the following areas:
Drew’s peer Academic Coaches are trained and specialize in providing skills that students can transmit across content/subject areas throughout their college career.
Please make an appointment with a peer academic coach on WConline. Be sure to choose “Academic Coaching” from the “Limit To” drop down menu on the main schedule dashboard.
