PATH Grant Success Coaches

Student Success Coaches are available to students in programs that are under the PATH Grant to provide holistic support in navigating their educational experience. Coaches work with students to identify barriers they may face and make a realistic individualized success plan. Health Science programs can be challenging and can sometimes get overwhelming. Success Coaches can help students with goal setting, time management, study skills, test-taking strategies, self-advocacy, motivation and growth mindset.
