The Success Coach is a member of the College Success Center team within the Division of Student Learning. This team supports the student learning process with the primary goal of maximizing levels of college access and success.

This is a grant-funded position through the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V). Continuation of position is contingent upon annual local plan approval and availability of federal grant funds. This Success Coach will have the secondary responsibility of collaborating with campus colleagues to coordinate training efforts in areas such as AVISO, Intrusive Advising, Appreciative Advising, and other student success related topics. The individual will research best practices and make recommendations for improvements and changes to programs to enhance student retention. The Success Coach will also support a caseload of students in career and technical education programs to navigate college and career pathways.
