Champlain College provides its students with many opportunities to learn how to get the most out of their valuable college education and build skills for a successful future. In addition to academic support services which include peer-tutoring through its campus labs and 24/7 online tutoring through Smarthinking, Champlain also offers each student the opportunity to work with an academic coach.
Champlain College's academic coaches create with each student a personal and confidential relationship which is built on trust and respect for their unique strengths and goals. In private meetings or small group settings, academic coaches work with students on self-advocacy, goal clarification, motivation, mindfulness, time management, study skills and reading comprehension and then help them create personal plans for academic success. Key to their work is a student-centered approach which builds self-advocacy and accountability and encourages students to fully engage with all of the resources and learning opportunities Champlain has to offer.
Students are busier and manage more competing priorities than ever before and their aspirations for themselves continue to grow. Through one-on-one sessions and small group workshops, Academic Coaching offers each student an opportunity to work with a professional who is trained in providing academic and motivational support, customized to each student's own strengths and goals. Champlain is one of few colleges or universities in the country that invests in academic coaching for students. We take pride in knowing that Champlain students are developing skills that not only provide short-term success at Champlain, but will be a valuable advantage as they progress professionally after graduation.
