About the Office of Success Coaching

virtual student-coach meeting

Our Why: 

Our office is focused on providing equitable and personalized and holistic coaching to First Year students who are not in a specialized program. Success Coaching begins once students submit their intent to enroll at CSUSM and continues through the entire first year. Success Coaching enhances the likelihood that First-Year students will persist into their second year; which will increase the likelihood of student retention and successful graduate rates.  Moreover, through Success Coaching, students learn self-efficacy and critical thinking which increases resiliency and self-determination. Success Coaches are here to listen, guide, support, and cheer students on.  

How we do it: 

Our office works collaboratively with areas across the CSUSM campus to ensure that students have a smooth transition throughout their first year at CSUSM. Success Coaches provide support to students in the following ways: 

  • One on one meetings  
  • Success Coaching Workshops  
  • Community Building 
  • Enrollment Support (in collaboration with Academic Advising) 
  • Resource connection and referrals
