As part of a broad initiative to support highly talented and motivated first-generation, limited-income (FLI) students, Johns Hopkins University has created a new Success Coaching Program within Academic Advising. Staff in the program have a hybrid role of academic advising and success coaching. As academic advisors, they assist students with course registration, academic strategies, selecting majors and minors, and developing post-graduation plans. They troubleshoot academic problems, monitor academic progress and academic standing, and advise on policies and procedures. As success coaches, they use an appreciative, strengths-based advising model in order to increase retention, completion, engagement, satisfaction, and social mobility among FLI students.
Academic Advisors/Success Coaches report to the Director of the Advising/Coaching program. The program itself is a partnership among Homewood Student Affairs and the offices of academic advising in our two undergraduate schools on the Homewood Campus. In this second phase of the program build-out, we intend to hire four advisors/coaches simultaneously. Two advisors/coaches will be embedded in the Academic Advising office in the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences; two advisors/coaches will be embedded in the Academic Advising office in the Whiting School of Engineering.
Review of applications begins February 17, 2020.
