RISE: Academic Coaching

ELE 130

RISE stands for building Responsibility, Integrity, Self-Awareness, and Engagement in students. This department offers academic coaches who are available to work with students in all classes. In a sense, RISE coaches can be looked at as academic tutors that are available on campus. In addition to offering help in all content areas, RISE coaches help students advocate for themselves with teachers, and they will serve as a constant accountability checkpoint for students.
