Working within the Learning Assistance Department, the Academic Coaches support the retention and success of students at SUNY Broome.
Academic Coaches help students achieve academic success by providing assistance with time management, study skills, test preparation, setting academic goals, and other appropriate interventions. There are two Academic Coach for Career & Technical Education (CTE) – Perkins-eligible programs, one for the Divisions of Health Sciences and STEM and one for students in programs within the Business and Professional Service Division. There is also an Academic Coach for students in the Liberal Arts Programs, PTECH, BAP and for non-matriculated students.
Academic Coaches facilitate communication, through the use of Starfish, between professors and students to support academic needs and concerns. They also meet with students who are on Academic Probation to develop Recovery Plans and monitor progress and refer students to other support services on campus, such as Academic Advising, Counseling, Professional and Peer Tutoring, Supplemental Instruction, Math Lab, Writing Center, and the Accessibility Resources Office.
In addition to the Academic Coaches within the LAD, the Admissions office has an Enrollment Coach who supports the enrollment and participation of prospective and new CTE students, and the on-campus Center for Career Development has a Career Coach who supports students’ career development efforts.
