What is a Success Coach?

Success Coaches work with students to provide tools, strategies, and resources to help them in their academic journey here at Grand Valley. Using a holistic approach, in addition to providing academic strategies, Success Coaches utilize a network of campus partners to assist with each student’s individual situation. Success Coaching sessions are designed to help students improve academic performance and position students to take an active role in their own success.

Success Coaching is offered to all students at Grand Valley State University. When meeting with a Success Coach, students can discuss a variety of topics including:

Time Management & Organization

Study Skills & Test-taking Strategies

Motivation & Procrastination
