Success Coaching

Success Coaching.

Success Coaching is a coaching program that supports second-year or sophomore students in their continued success at DePaul.

The second year is a year of figuring out yourself, the world, and your future. Your coach is here to assist in every step.

Success Coaches meet with assigned students one-on-one via Zoom or in-person. If you are a sophomore or second year student, you will get outreach. You can always contact us at successcoach@depaul.edu.

Coaching is a team effort with different experts able to provide support when you need it.

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
  • Navigate your virtual college experience

The coaching team also has experts to assist in Strengths assessment, time management and productivity, and your academic skills and learning styles.
