Student Organization Success Coaches
The Student Organization Success Coaches are a cohort supported by Student Activites. Coaches are trained to work with student organizations on a variety of leadership development topics to foster organizational success across the entire student org community. This includes one-on-one consultation meetings and programming open to any organization.
We Can Help Your Student Organization
All student organizations can request assistance from a coach. You personal coach can consult and work with leaders, members, or the entire organization in a variety of ways:
Framework Specialists- coaches will help your organization utilize the new Student Organization Success Framework to help your org attain excellence across a variety of essential outcomes
Problem-Solving Support- coaches will help you solve problems related to your organization's operations, events and interpersonal relationships by navigating university resources
Campus Involvement- coaches will provide individual consultation for students looking to get further involved in the student organization community
Community Building- coaches support programming for student orgs including president and treasurer trainings, Student Involvement Fairs, roundtable discussions, KBK Open House, and others
Request a Coach
To request a meeting with a Student Organization Success Coach, please use the Student Activities Resource Request Form. Our team will match you with a coach and schedule an initial meeting. Depending on the nature of your situation, you may connect with your coach in-person or virtually, just once or multiple times. You can also use this request form to request other support, including leadership workshops or community service consultations.
Coaches are also available for walk-in meetings during their regular office hours in the Keith B. Key Center for Student Leadership and Service, Room 3094E. Feel free to attend office hours for questions on using the Student Organization Success Framework or other topics regarding student orgs. Please note, Coach Office Hours are not for New Organization Welcome meetings.
For spring semester 2020, Coaches will be using virtual methods to connect with and provide support for student organizations.
If you would like to schedule a meeting to chat about your student organization, email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule.
Requests will be considered for virtual programs and consultations. No requests for in-person experiences will be accepted before May 9, in alignment with university protocols related to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
