Welcome to First-Year Initiatives! Heading link

Now a subdivision within the Academic Center for Excellence, First-Year Initiatives continues to offer Transition Coaching and coordinate Summer College. 

First-Year Initiatives is a service aimed to help cohorts of students as they transition from high school, throughout the academic journey, to graduation.  First-Year Initiatives is also home to Transition Coaching and Summer College.  Transition Coaches support students through holistic and asset-based coaching practices. Support includes life skills enrichment, academic skills, and strategies to find and ask for help. Coaches will help students develop meaningful relationships, clarify goals, gain access to different networks and understand how to navigate college culture.  We are dedicated to providing all of our students with the skills, resources and knowledge needed in order to successfully navigate the college experience!
