Undergraduate Advising Center

The Peer Success Coach Program

ROLE OF THE PEER SUCCESS COACH:  Peer Success Coaches (PSCs) serve as peer mentors, within the Undergraduate Advising Center (UAC). This dynamic role promotes and enhances the academic success of students. PSCs support students’ academic and social development by connecting students with resources and programs to enhance student learning. This allows students to combine the tutelage from both Academic Advisors and PSCs in order to establish a foundation for a successful college career.

Mission: PSCs are a part of an integrated effort to create an outstanding university experience for all First Year students at KU with a focus on academic success. PSCs will aid in providing new students with a transition to college life and college-level learning in four important ways:

  • Raise academic expectations with engagement and compassion through programming
  • Serving as a resource to connect students with programs and initiatives that enhance learning and success
  • Partnering with UAC Academic Advisors to foster campus community and feelings of inclusion at KU
  • Offer opportunities for academic and personal development
