The peer coaching program is dedicated to creating and sustaining a learning environment that supports a successful academic and social transition of all students into the Aims community. Peer coaches will promote a proactive approach to students' engagement in campus life as they adjust to college through support, information, and guidance.
Why use a peer coach?
Peer coaches have successfully navigated Aims classes, resources and policies and have a strong commitment to seeing their fellow peers succeed in their personal, professional and educational goals. Peer coaches provide 1-1 social and emotional support, connect students to on and off-campus resources and academic coaching (time-management, test-taking and study skills, support for AimsOnline and other technology).
Peer coaching will resume regular hours in the Learning Commons beginning the week of August 27, 2018.
Bobby McFarling, Aims and peer coach alum, will be available through the summer to work with students 1-1.
