Academic Success Coaches are responsible for ensuring that students receive persistent, proactive, individualized mentoring, academic coaching and support throughout their time at Lansing Community College. We believe in working with students to help them identify and utilize their strengths while empowering them to succeed at LCC and accomplish their academic goals.
What We Do
We meet with students! Students are encouraged to reach out to an Academic Success Coach; they may also be referred to us by instructors or other members of the LCC community. During our meetings we will learn about the students' experiences at LCC, identify obstacles that may be barriers to their academic success, and help strategize solutions and next-steps. Some of the topics discussed may include:
- Study strategies - how to effectively study, take notes, and keep organized
- Time Management - how to balance work, school, and other responsibilities
- Self-Awareness - helping students identify their strengths, purpose, and goals
- Campus Engagement and Resources - Identifying opportunities and resources on campus and helping students make those connections
Instructors and members of the LCC community:
You are able to see firsthand when students are experiencing barriers to success or showing signs that they may need additional support.
The Early Alert process is a college-wide collaborative effort designed to support student success by identifying and warning students who may be in danger of failing one or more courses. Early Alerts help students by providing connections to useful resources that will support them in their current situation. Campus professionals will make efforts to personally reach out to students and provide relevant, targeted support.
