Position Description

Academic Coaches work with all K-State students, especially students who are conditionally admitted to K-State and are assigned to the Academic Coaching program as an added layer of support for their first year on campus. Within the program, we utilize an individual, goal-based coaching cycle where students self-identify areas of academic and personal need to focus on during their one-on-one meetings. Successful university students employ a host of global, metacognitive tools, and reflexively manage themselves in relationship to their learning. We in Academic Coaching believe that through deliberate, one-on-one meetings, all students can build the capacity to achieve academic and personal success. Why Join Us: The Academic Coaching Program is housed within the Academic Achievement Center.

The Academic Achievement Center seeks to empower students through useful resources, motivate through positive encouragement, and inspire hard work and dedication. AAC’s services are open to all Kansas State University students and are met with understanding, encouragement, and the resources to generate success now and in the future. We are a team dedicated to meeting students where they are. Participating in academic coaching is unlike any other program at Kansas State University. The coaching team invests time and resources to support successful college experiences. Students that are placed in the program and complete the program are more likely to have a higher GPA than those not receiving coaching. Students are less likely to be put on academic warning or academic dismissal. This position is benefits eligible: health insurance, life insurance, retirement plans, tuition assistance program, paid time off-vacation, sick and holidays.
