What are Transition Coaches?

Transition coaches provide direct service to students around transition to the university, educational planning, goal setting, navigating university systems, referral to other university resources, emotional support, building community, and career-related objectives.

The coaching model is based on the “Advising as Coaching” model as described by NACADA. This model is driven by questions that encourage the student to take responsibility for the process of developing, refining, and engaging in their own decision-making and planning activities that also include preparation for academic advising and degree planning.
