Coaching is the most cost-effective college persistence intervention.
The most effective coaching strategies are student-centered, proactive, trauma-informed, and occur in the context of a trusting relationship.
College graduates from low socio-economic backgrounds still suffer from employment and wealth inequities, which hampers economic mobility. Translating a college degree into gainful employment and economic mobility requires more than a diploma. Social and cultural capital, facilitated by coaching, are required to launch and foster a career.
When students’ basic needs, including social-emotional needs, are addressed, students have the opportunity to fully engage in the classroom and on campus, as engagement is essential for college completion.
Coaching helps mitigate non-academic barriers faced by underserved students.
Underserved students who are admitted to college face many barriers to enrolling in college, but students who receive enrollment support are more likely to enroll and succeed in the first-year.
Improving year-to-year persistence, especially in the first-year, is the most crucial step in improving college completion rates. Students need robust support in the first year, but also need continuous scaffolded support over subsequent years in order to graduate.
