Student Success Coaches are here to help first-year students achieve success at DePaul!

What is Student Success Coaching?

Student Success Coaching is a peer coaching program that assigns an upperclassman or graduate level coach to each first-year student to support them in their transition to and journey through DePaul.

Student Success Coaches meet with their assigned students one-on-one, and together they reflect on the first year student’s strengths, challenges and vision for the future, while creating an action plan to meet their idea of success.

Your success coach can help you:

  • Reflect on your strengths and target areas for growth
  • Establish short-term academic and personal goals
  • Identify campus resources most appropriate to help you on your way
  • Improve time management skills
  • Join or establish student organizations

No matter what your idea of success is, your coach will help you set goals and keep on track, encourage you along the way, and connect you to key campus resources at critical points on your journey.

To get connected with a Student Success Coach, email successcoach@depaul.edu or call 773-325-7360.
