What is the Success Coaching Program?

The Success Coaching Program is designed to help undergraduate students at UC Davis take control of their academic, personal, and professional success. Coaches use a strengths-based approach to support the student's exploration of the habits, priorities, values, and challenges that may be impacting their college experience.  Coaching incorporates elements of self-assessment, reflection, skill-building, goal-setting, and accountability. Through one-on-one meetings with a coach, students will gain an increased sense of self-awareness in order to develop practical strategies for solving problems and eliminating barriers to maximum performance. In this way, coaches provide holistic, personalized support in order to help bridge the gap between where students are and where they want to be. By participating in this interactive process, students will be empowered to take control of their college experience by feeling equipped with a toolkit and concrete plan for moving forward.
