CEAS Academic Coaching is intended to help you develop your strengths and determine what it takes to be a successful student at CU Boulder.

Academic coaching is a series of one-on-one meetings for undergraduate Engineering students with a professional Academic Coach. Coaching sessions encourage you to expand your self-awareness, discover and develop academic skills and habits, and create well-designed action plans to embrace your potential with confidence. Academic Coaches are dedicated to supporting your academic, personal, and career success.
