Peer Academic Coaching

New! Virtual Skill Workshops and Study Rooms with HSC!

Our Peer Academic Coaches (PAC) are offering small group virtual mini-workshops, designed to help you develop the skills you need to be a successful college student. Special attention is given to the unique challenges experienced by students entering college for the first time in a completely virtual environment. 

Study Rooms give you a place to create a plan for your study session, then work individually or collaboratively in a break-out room to complete your task and achieve your goals.

Mission and Vision

The goal of this program is two-fold; to increase the retention and persistence of first-year students admitted to the University, with special attention given to those students admitted through the EMU Edge Program, and to increase the retention, persistence and academic success of those students employed by the Holman Success Center as Peer Academic Coaches.
