Student Success Coaching

You are here


Michigan State University’s Diversity Programs Office employs student success coaches who are undergraduate Engineering students. The success coaches are available to help students achieve their educational and professional goals. Using a strengths-based approach, our staff is focused on empowering students through one-on-one meetings and events to further develop students’ time management skills, study skills, professionalism, and other non-cognitive skills. They can direct students to important campus resources for assistance with test-taking, study habits, career planning and much more.

Success coaches are here to guide student along the way, but remember, students are responsible for making their own decisions during college regarding courses to take, which major(s) to pursue, and when to see an adviser. Students are responsible for keeping current with curriculum changes, including course schedules and progress towards the degree.
