Women's Success Coaching

Success coaching is a one-to-one appointment where our coaches use a holistic advising approach to help you throughout your college experience. We do not replace your academic advisor but want to work with you to ensure academic and personal success.

Through success coaching, you can expect to be offered personalized support and mentorship-from applying to UVU to applying for your graduation from UVU-we are here for you! Success coaching is available to all UVU students of all genders and backgrounds.

What Is Holistic Advising

Holistic advisors see the whole student and are aware that there is more on a student’s mind than just homework. When providing insight and resources, our success coaches tailor support to assist students in the moment with all that may be stressful and or exciting. For example, notices the differences in the types of support offered to each student in the figure.

Our goals are to be proactive of student challenges while ensuring continued success. We do this by connecting students directly to campus and community resources.

We’re available to meet as often or as little as you’d like-weekly, bi-weekly, monthly-totally up to you! Please note that some scholarship recipients have predetermined time commitment to meet with success coaches.
